Bookshop Santa Cruz presents Noisy Night, a delightfully creative collaboration between celebrated children’s book creators Mac Barnett and Brian Biggs. In honor of Noisy Night, we are throwing a NOISY pajama party! Our hosts for the evening will be wearing their PJs, and we'll be offering promotional prizes for pajama-clad patrons who come to see Mac and Brian talk. In fact, Mac and Brian just might be wearing their jammies as well. Join us!
It's a noisy night in this city building! What could be making those baa-ing, cawing, cha-cha-cha-ing sounds? Climb floor by floor and page by page to find out whose singing, dancing, cheering, and cooing are keeping a grumpy old man awake in a multi-story apartment building deep in the city.
With innovative split-level spreads that offer the feeling of climbing a building level by level, this clever and colorful collaboration between New York Times-bestselling author Mac Barnett and gifted illustrator Brian Biggs offers an irresistible investigation of one noisy night.
Mac Barnett is a New York Times–bestselling author of more than ten picture books, including The Terrible Two as well as 2013 Caldecott Honor Book Extra Yarn, which won the 2012 Boston Globe–Horn Book Award for Excellence in Picture Books. He was born in 1982 to non–farmers in a California farming community. Now he lives in Berkeley.
Brian Biggs is the illustrator of approximately one bazillion children's books, three of which he also wrote. Brian creates his pictures in an old, one-story garage studio in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He lives with his wife and teenage kids nearby in a three-story house, right next to some very noisy neighbors.
