Hush That Hullabaloo! is a rollicking, rhyming, read-aloud set in Scotland, full of Scottish words that will delight readers as they repeat the catchy phrases and imitate a Scottish brogue. Grandpa Goose is grouchy as the lads and lassies make a mess in his "hoose" and lots of noise—a hullabaloo! Grandma soothes him with the refrain, 
"Wheesht, wheesht, 
 It's only the wee ones. 
 Wheesht, wheesht, 
 Only the wee ones." 

Can you figure out what the hullabaloo is all about before Grandpa Goose does? 

The story includes a list of Scottish words, pronunciations, and meanings.

"Reads like a song" (5 out of 5 STARS)

By Amy Nicholson

This book reads like a song. With a touch of playful Scottish verse and illustrations as colorful and expressive as its words, it will have you tapping a foot--maybe even dancing a jig--and joining the folks in the hullabaloo!

"Och Aye ... a wee bit o' fun!" (4 OUT OF 5 STARS)

By Frances

A sweet wee read for bairns ... prompts guessing and discussion, "What's going on, why is Grandpa Goose grouchy?" is a good introduction to Scottish fun ... I like the ceilidh at the end ... very Scottish (but where are the bagpipes?) "Hush that hullabaloo" is destined to be come a household catchword for parents and teachers.
