Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2—His exceptionally loud voice has always posed a problem for Holler, the young son of the Loudly family. His parents, teachers, friends, and the townspeople have hushed and shushed him all his life, but to no avail. Loudness just comes naturally to him as it has to others of his line, every several generations. Getting kicked out of a movie theater, ruining a day of fishing with Gramps, and scattering all the animals at the state fair's hog-calling contest finally convince him to settle down and understand that being quiet and listening can be quite pleasant. However, when a tornado threatens his town, Holler decides there are times to be quiet and times that require LOUD. And that's when he takes action; he shouts down that durned tornado and breaks it up into harmless bits of breezes, finally putting his gift to good use. This original tall tale with its highly energetic, brightly colored illustrations has expressive typeface showing the word "LOUD" repeatedly in bold capital letters. Readers as well as listeners will have fun with this animated story, and the Southwestern twang will just come naturally.—Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI

Holler Loudly was born loud. Every few generations, one of the Loudlys is unusually loud. But as he grows, everybody thinks he is too loud. He gets kicked out of the movie theatre, he disrupts class, scares the fish away. But maybe one day that loud voice can come in handy. The story is wonderfully written and illustrated. It will be enjoyed in our house again and again and I am sure in yours also, especially as the children try to copy Holler's loud outbursts.

Holler was born into the Loudly family. He was named Holler because he cried so loud when he was a baby. Be as he grew, so did his voice. He was so loud that he shook the tress, messed up family moments and annoyed people. His parents tried to get him to be quiet, but every once in a while a baby is born into the Loudly family that is just plain loud. And nothing his parents did or said could get Holler to be quiet. But one day a very strange thing happens and Holler learns that there is a time to be loud and a time to be quiet.

My kids absolutely love this book. And I'll admit, I do too. The illustrations are hilarious and fit perfectly with the story. The exaggerations in the story made my kids laugh. But it also gets a subtle message across about having times for quiet and times for loud. This is something a mother can really appreciate. This book is one of our top favorites, especially when read in the appropriate voices.

Holler Loudly is a tall tale which proves that everything truly is bigger in Texas, even voices. Every few generations a Loudly baby is born with an enormous voice, and Holler is the newest inductee to this hall of fame. The good townsfolk shush Holler everywhere he goes until one day he realizes the value of quiet. However, soon thereafter, they learn to appreciate Holler's gift when he saves the town using his innate ability to quell a dangerous force of nature. Holler's adventure is depicted in bright, colorful, full-bleed, double-page spreads that mirror the characters' magnitude--whether it be the protagonists' volume, the townsfolks' ire, or everyone's jubilation. As Holler Loudly is a story about a larger-than-life Texas boy who travels throughout the town building toward his epiphany, it could be used to introduce episodic adventures like Homer's The Odyssey.

I never thought that my son would like to "read". Having me read to him has always been his least favorite activity. He asks for this book by name! As long as I will read "Holler Loudly" to him, he will sit and read anything with me. We now enjoy reading. Please give this book a try if you have a loud rowdy boy. He will love it and so will you.
