    “With Quiet!, Céline Claire offers us a radiant picture book with the power to unveil the impression of well-being that keeps us mutually isolated and alone. A whole world is teeming with life in this book. It’s an ode to humans who enjoy themselves, live, and are a part of ‘the small melody of life.”

    Marie Fradette, sophielit.ca


    “With its wonderfully nuanced illustrations, Quiet! is a book of outstanding quality.”

    Réjean Blais, Radio-Canada


    “The book’s detailed illustrations will satisfy readers as much as Mr. Martin’s grouchiness!”
