Sue Eves incorporates a life lesson in The Quiet Woman and the Noisy Dog, ably assisted by Ailie Busby's amusing illustrations. They begin by showing us a quiet woman who lives in a quiet house with a noisy dog in a noisy town.

When that quiet woman takes her noisy dog to the park, they meet a noisy woman with a quiet dog. Of course, when the two dogs play together, they end up equally noisy and muddy. Can you guess what happens? You got it. There's a canine mix-up, and the two women take the wrong dogs home with them.

After bath time, each realizes their error. The dogs are exchanged and are happy to settle back in to their own homes, not caring whether they're noisy or quiet - just as their people are happy to have their own dogs back. The Quiet Woman and the Noisy Dog is a cute story which emphasizes that love matters much more than personality differences.
