Maurice Pledger’s stunning artwork is brought to life with authentic animal sounds and adorable pop-ups. Noisy Nature: On the Farm delights children for hours on end with five pop-up panoramas that include a fluffy yellow duckling who calls out quack, quack, quack; a hungry calf who munches grass and moos; a playful piglet who snuffles in the pen, then oinks and squeals; a gentle lamb who skips and leaps and calls out baa, baa; and a brown foal who bounds along and neighs!
Maurice Pledger is an internationally-acclaimed artist known for his realistic and detailed illustrations of animals and wildlife. He's had no formal art training, but achieves the realism and detail in his beautiful artwork by spending hours in the field observing, sketching, and studying his subjects in their natural environment. First published at age 17, he has since had his illustrations featured on greeting cards, prints, gifts, and books. He has created several successful series, including Sounds of the Wild, Peek-and-Find, Nature Trails, and Pledger Sticker Books. He was the recipient of the 1992 Francis Williams Illustration Award for the Best Descriptive Illustration. This honor is given only once every 5 years by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
