Mr. Martin finds a magical solution to maintain calm and silence around him. But how long will he enjoy his time away from everyone?

Mr. Martin enjoys tranquility. He likes to drink his coffee in silence, read his newspaper quietly, and take peaceful naps. His neighbors are aware of that, but easily forget — so much so that the noise they make drives Mr. Martin up the wall. One day, he decides to take matters into his own hands…


"Céline Claire uses well-known figures of speech to sharpen the wit of a modern-day fable for readers  in “Quiet!"
Wall Street Journal
"Desiring peace and quiet may be a familiar theme, but the appealing approach in this title will prompt laughter and appreciation as a cantankerous man comes to appreciate a little noise."
School Library Journal
"The storyline of what happens when you get what you wish (and learning of the pitfalls that getting your wish could unexpectedly entail) by author Celine Claire, "Quiet!" is a unique, thought provoking, and thoroughly fun read for children ages 4-7."
Midwest Book Review
