Award-winning children's book author Barbara Bottner teams up with illustrator Alexander Stadler for a humorous and tender story about overcoming shyness. Charlene is a 6year-old who's intimidated when she's at school and at parties, but she has a secret that empowers her: she plays the drums, and she loves to make noise. Barbara Bottner is the author of Bootsie Barker Bites .
Publisher's Weekly Review:
""Stadler's illustrations are a good match for Bottner's concise, understated text," according to PW. "The underlying message is that the heroine is okay just the way she is-and, considering how often reticence is portrayed as a handicap-that's quite a revelation." Ages 4-8.
