Contrary to popular portrayal, not all interesting girls are sassy and loud. Eileen Spinelli’s character wrestles gorillas, tickles white sharks and dunks with a whoop, but only when no one is watching.
There’s no need to feel sorry for this shy girl, for when she’s alone, she’s brave, and when she’s with her best friend, it doesn’t matter if anyone is watching at all.
David A. Johnson‘s spirited illustrations highlights the emotions of someone who understands who is she is and where she can be herself. The best thing is this book’s concept: a shy child does not have to change to become more outgoing; she can be content just as she is, and she has a friend who feels the same.
