The Very Noisy Night is a hardback book, the front cover has the title of the book written at the top of it in large letters with the majority of it being taken up with a picture of Little Mouse (one of the main characters) peering out from behind a blanket. The back of the book has a small amount of information about the book on it. Inside all of the pages are paper pages, not ideal for a young child as they may find these hard to turn, however now Jayden is a bit older he does manage this better now, although with his paper page books we tend to read these to him rather than leave him to his own devises. The picture on the front cover is bright and colourful making it eye catching for young children.
