The True Story of Mary

Who Wanted to Stand on Her Head

Book - 2005
Rate this:
Told in 31 rhyming verses, this charming, illustrated story introduces Mary, a little girl who refuses to be anything less than herself. At her school, there are only two rules--do everything you are told and never stand on your head. Mary isn't about to be restrained by those restrictions. Darkly humorous illustrations add a sly, subversive element to this empowering tale of individuality. Mary has her own view of the world and refuses to fit in with everyone else.
