ROGER IS READING A BOOK- KOON VAN BIESEN
Roger is sitting in his apartment, enjoying the peace and quiet, and attempting to read a book. Unfortunately, his next door neighbor, Emily, has much noisier pastimes, e.g. bouncing a basketball, moves on to singing, playing the drums, and juggling. . Roger knocks noisily on the walls, more than once, but each time, the noise steps for a minute and then starts again. Finally, Roger goes out and buys Emily her own book. The noise problem is solved, but just for a minute.
Great, great, great story! Sparse text with wonderful repetition and terrific sound effects! Really fun and different illustration style!
