Nora craves attention but her mother and father are occupied with the baby and Nora's sister Kate. Nora creates several diversions and disasters but doesn't get attention until she runs away to the cupboard. Then it's the silence that disturbs them. The text is rhyming with the repeated phrase: "Nora had to wait". Many of the details are visual and there is much to think about in this funny book.
