Author Julie Fulton’s Daniel O’Dowd was ever so Loud is the fourth in the Ever So Series and follows on from the very popular Mrs MacCreedy was ever so Greedy.
The story follows poor Daniel who is a little loud, and often in trouble because of it. However. when he gets into a little difficulty in space, he needs to remember what his teacher, Miss Pool, said about listening. Written in a fun style with plenty of colour it teaches kids the importance of listening.
Talking about her book, Julie said: “I knew I wanted the next zany character from Hamilton Shady to be a boy, and loud seemed to fit the bill perfectly! There has been a lot in the news over recent months about the threat to earth of near misses with asteroids. I sort of put the two ideas together and came up with Daniel’s story.”
Here’s what our young reviewer had to say:

​"It was a really nice book. I really like when he was funny and shouting. That made me laugh. I liked the drawings. My favourite thing is that it rhymed.  I like books that rhyme."
