When Abigail can't concentrate in class, she gets bored and is naughty. But just when things are about to go wrong yet again, a teacher discovers exactly what to do to engage this little girl, and Abigail ends up finding a special voice of her very own.

This is a mainstream book that celebrates Special Needs - readers and families will identify with the protagonist who displays symptoms of ADHD, but with the right encouragement, ends up triumphing.

Abigail's song is from LOUD (c) Rose Robbins 2021. Performed and recorded by Rosie Smith, of Shelflife Books and Zines

Praise for this book:

'A subtle and engaging picture book story … A great book for children who get frustrated by the expectations of school life.' SCHOOL READING LIST

'LOUD! is an incredibly important story for all children. It is a celebration of diversity and working together for the good of everyone.' SCOPE FOR IMAGINATION>

'Sometimes a serious topic is best approached through humour: it's certainly very successful here with Rose Robbins' quirky illustrative style.' >RED READING HUB

'Well researched and beautifully delivered with many casually inclusive elements, this a powerful reminder that behaviour often perceived as "challenging" may actually signify frustration and a need for empathy and support.' BOOKTRUST

'This sensitive book celebrates neurodiversity – specifically ADHD, and is a great starting point for class discussion about how differently we learn. The author has an autistic brother and teaches autistic young people, and the authenticity of her experience and knowledge clearly shines through.' TEACH REAING AND WRITING MAGAZINE

'This is another sensitive portrayal of a child who experiences difficulty fitting in with conventional social situations … Far from being loud herself, Rose's calm and humble approach is an antidote to a world of meaningless noise. She is a voice for children who are shouting to be heard and her books are an essential component to an inclusive classroom.' JUST IMAGINE

'A vibrant and explosive exploration of diversity and neurodiversity, a celebration of being yourself and finding the sympathetic someone.' ARMADILLO
