Grade 1-3–There once was a king who could not tolerate noise. The commotion at his son's birth was so great that he called for Silencio! which became the prince's name. The boy grows up, and the king charges him with enforcing the Law of Silence. Silencio's presence among his subjects causes pauses and great gaps in conversations. When the king finally dies, the kingdom explodes in dancing and boisterous chatter. Silencio tries to join the fun, but the people reject him until they realize the importance of the silence …between the laughter and the songs. Between the words. Unique illustrations fill the pages with a cacophony of color, pattern, and texture. The king, represented by a large face in the shape of a castle, stands tall above the buildings in his realm. Silencio is dressed in white in contrast to the brightly colored crowd. Some pictures also contain words running together and flowing from the chattering crowd. The quirky and symbolic details of the illustrations will be best appreciated by individual readers. However, the size and color of the artwork and the simple text make this a good book to share with groups.–Carolyn Janssen, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH
