Review by: MasterReadersBooks on May 4, 2015 :
Thanks to one rainy summer holiday in the Lake Dictrict and an immense abundance of spiders around the rented log cabin, The Spiderling Chronicles exist. That's where the author got his inspiration and I think, it's a good idea to turn creepy crawlies into characters in a series of books for kids, as in reality, they are usually not that creepy, if we care to take a closer look instead of just crushing them.

Here we have Noisy Norris, who just loves to turn everything in his surrounds into an instrument (a melody all parents will be familiar with at some point). No matter, if it's the kitchen saucepans and a spoon or the garden fence and a broomstick, Norris loves the sounds he can create. His parents and the neighbours have a different idea and Norris is told off.
He feels very sad and goes to the park, where he's all by himself. He starts tapping his hands on one of the garden tables and Mike the Music Man, who happens to walk past, overhears him and offers Norris to play in his band.
Now the future looks bright for Noisy Norris, as he's allowed to play the drums and stardom looms around the corner. His parents are proud and even the neighbours are his greatest fans.

The short book is enhanced with vivid illustrations and there are lots of "sounds" in the text (Da Da Da Drum, Clack Clack Clackety Clack, etc.), something which children will love. At the end of the book, the author offers ideas to think and talk about, which will engage the young reader further with the story.
Questions like "What can you find that makes the best drumming noises?" will have children take a greater interest in their surrounds and look at it with open eyes. To talk about how Norris' noise upset the parents and neighbours, will have them reflect, why the adults reacted the way they did.
The end of the story offers an interesting thought for us all: the once most annoying kid in the neighbourhood, is all of a sudden awesome, once he's a star.
