Tiny house living leads to big drama as Twig tries to clock reading hours to bring her class a victory in this third installment of the Twig and Turtle series. Perfect for fans of Ivy and Bean and Judy Moody.
The tiny house is too loud!
Twig's participating in her school's read-a-thon, but it's hard to concentrate with Dad watching TV, and Turtle trying to blow gum bubbles or showing off the tiny house to curious passers-by. And when Twig's classmate Matteo starts logging more reading time than her, she's desperate to get back her lead, even if it means staying up way past her bedtime.
But when Mom and Dad find out what's been going on, it's time to make some changes to the tiny house rules. Can they find a way to make alone time in a family that's so squished together?
Sweet and bright, Quiet Please!, the third book in the Twig and Turtle chapter book series will be loudly cheered by fans of Ivy and Bean and Judy Moody.

"In this warm, heartfelt story, funny and detailed narration from exasperated Twig emphasizes her lack of privacy, and vivid descriptions will plant readers right there in the tiny house. Franco’s illustrations pair seamlessly with the text, and at different times emphasize the joy, sadness, humor, and determination of Twig’s family and the cast of characters in her neighborhood. This early reader stands alone despite being third in the series." —School Library Journal
