Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No more boring parties! No more dull meetings! No more getting stuck with a little kid and not knowing how to make her laugh. Perfect for extroverts, office cutups, actors and storytellers, practical jokers, and the unsung clowns who brighten all our days, MouthSounds is the book for people who would give anything to imitate a Toilet Plunger. Or a Sports Car Smash and Crash (with debris and rolling hubcap). Sound like Gollum while reading Lord of the Rings to a favorite nephew. Have meaningful dialogue with your dog. Hold the table spellbound by acting out "Titanic: The Movie" in ten seconds.Since he wrote the first MouthSounds in 1980, Fred Newman whistled, popped, boinged, and honked his way to social success, creating noises and sounds for dozens of movies. He's continued to perfect his very particular art, touring with Garrison Keillor on A Prairie Home Companion and appearing regularly on PBS's Between the Lions. And behold--Arena Cheers and Applause, please!--the new MouthSounds, featuring more than 150 useful noises to make with your mouth . . . melodious, whimsical, and rude, too. The Taxi Whistle. The Cell Phone Ring. The Stomach Growl. Birds, Banjos, and Rock Guitars. Complete with photographs and illustrations, step-by-step instructions, plus an enhanced CD and tips on where and when to perform for maximum impact--yoga class, first date, job interview, press conference.

Synopsis:

Useful sounds, romantic sounds, ridiculous sounds, sounds to drive people crazy. This is a hilarious practitioner's manual with more than 70 noises including the sounds of a barking dog, dripping water, and the taxi whistle. 151,000 copies in print.

I have had this book since I was a kid. I am now 39. THe sounds are hilarious, many of which have continued to be fin conversation with friends and their kids. It is a very fun book. The author now makes noises for Prairie Home Companion Radio show; he's a real pro. If you are looking for a great book of activities that will get you and your kids laughing together, this is a great choice.
