Meek, soft-spoken Mary Wrightly never has to be reminded to say "please" and "thank you." In fact, she's so well-mannered that she apologises when someone steps on her toes. When she's asked to speak up, or overlooked due to her quiet ways, Mary doesn't make a fuss. But when it looks like the ideal birthday present for her beloved baby brother is at risk, Mary finds the courage to raise her voice - politely, of course. A rich, vibrant palette underscores the warmth and sweetness in this feel-good family story.

Mary Wrightly doesn't like to raise her voice--but sometimes, she needs someone to listen. A sweet book about good manners and when it's appropriate to push back.
