Praise For…


"This illustrated nonfiction primer presents a compelling foray into the many aspects of sound and how it shapes the world. . . . [O]ften poetic. . . budding acousticians will find it a worthy resource."-Publishers Weekly 

"Despite the ostensible topic, it's the art and page design that occupy center stage in this large-format showcase. . . . [E]ach eye-catching scene features a mix of flat or minimally modeled images of musical instruments and other sound producers, animal or human silhouettes, and graphic representations of sonic waves, lines, bursts, or blasts. . . . Jazzy, loud illustrations command-and merit-attention . . ."-Kirkus Reviews

"[T]his attention-grabbing informational book starts with a bang: a rapid-fire tour of all things sound. Chock-full of whimsical infographics. . . [Sound is] a quiet meditation on hearing, listening, silence, communication, and understanding."-The Horn Book Magazine
