Clovis is a very noisy little tiger. He knows he has the loudest roar in the whole jungle. And Clovis thinks that everyone else should know it, too. He's good at roaring, but he's very good at hiding-and that's when the trouble begins. The other animals soon tire of him jumping out and shocking them with his loud roar-but what can they do to stop him? This is a great story to read aloud and it wittily delivers its message about considerate behaviour. The audio CD brings the whole story to life with an imaginative soundtrack.
Thomas Taylor was born in Norfolk, England in 1973, but grew up in Wales. He attended Norwich Art School in 1991, before going on to specialise in illustration at Anglia University in Cambridge, graduating in 1995. After dabbling in Theatre design he decided to concentrate on children's books because he prefers the colours.
Since his first illustration job, the cover for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Bloomsbury), Thomas has contributed to and illustrated dozens of books, plus written and illustrated four: George and Sophies Museum Adventure, Orchard; The Loudest Roar, OUP; The Biggest Splash - OUP; and The Noisiest Night, OUP.
Thomas has recently moved from Cambridge to Normandy, France where he lives happily with his beautiful wife Célia and his little son Max. He still illustrates stories for children and loves reading them to his boy.
