This book is about the story of Ruppert, a very smart mouse who wants to write a wordless book. But he has a couple of mice friends who do not understand art and literature, and they are very noisy and chattering.
So they try to help with subjects to write about and superheroes to feature in the book when Ruppert has his own ideas and just needs them to BE QUIET!
The book is just so funny all along! Ruppert tries and tries to tell them to be quiet, but it never works. There is always something coming up that they need to tell, share, or ask. Or there are several noises here and there in the woods that disturb the book. The book also has some jokes about complicated words that the two little mice misunderstand, which made me laugh really hard.
At the end, the mice try to make a tree fall to hear its sound – to try to help their friend – but the tree ends up on Ruppert’s head. Ruppert is so frustrated that he starts yelling and protesting, to the point that even the two little mice tell him to BE QUIET!
