Muffin has a fine tuned sense of hearing which enables him to hear even the quietest of sounds and he is always off exploring to find out what these sounds might be. Each book in the series calls for interaction on the part of the readers. What is Muffin actually hearing? Can he hear fish swimming in the sea? Can he hear a man beginning a thought?
Following themes for each book, Muffin discovers sounds in the country, sounds in the city, sounds by the seashore and sounds indoors and out. Each title follows the same general story telling pattern: Muffin is introduced and the reader is then given a description of something that might make a particular noise. Of course, making sounds is a part of reading these books which just adds to the fun.

Our library had all but the City, Indoor and Summer Noisy books. I cannot find the images for the City or Summer Noisy books online.
It was fun to read through this series. Bookworm1 (age 4) rather enjoyed them although they weren't our Most Favorite Reads Ever. Cute and fun for thematic units but not entirely memorable in my humble opinion. You, of course, are free to your own! Anyway, they are worth a peek and so we present them to you!
