Shhh. Quiet. Roger is reading a book. Well, he's trying to anyway, but his young neighbor Emily, cooped up in her apartment on a dark and rainy day, is busy being creative, and athletic, and musical… and very noisy! Roger knocks and KNOCKS on the wall to explain that he is reading and would she please be quiet, but to no avail. At this point of course, Roger is not reading a book, he is thinking. What to do? Roger makes up his mind, coat on and out the door. Soon, he is at Emily’s front door. With a Present! What is it? Will it make Emily be quiet? Will Roger ever finish his book? Find out the answers to these burning questions when you read Roger Is Reading a Book. You’ll enjoy the humorous twist in the tale at the very end, told largely through the wonderful mixed media illustrations. See this book listed in our catalog
