Today Cees is going to read a book in the garden, together with her cats. The sun is shining, and there’s a swing bench in the garden. It’s lovely and peaceful. But then the woman next door starts talking to her dog. Really loudly. And it turns out that her neighbour Matthijs is having a DIY day. With drills and grinders and that sort of thing. The noise becomes NOISE. And Cees? She gets angry. REALLY angry.
This story really happened. Don’t you believe it? Well, it’s true. Just read it for yourself.
A book for beginning readers published in Querido’s Tijgerlezen series.
