Description
(Shortlisted for the 2006 Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Award, Younger Readers category) Told in 31 rhyming verses and surreal, darkly hilarious drawings by Czech illustrator Drahos Zak, this is the story of Mary, who from the time she was "merely a very small girl" would only stand on her head. A paean to intrepid individuality—and to finding one's true friends among the fussy and the pompous of the world—Jane Godwin's book for readers 5 to 9 offers "echoes of the old masters like Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, Hilaire Belloc and even [Maurice] Sendak.... While the detail in the beautifully crafted illustrations sets the scene, there is much to admire in the rich vocabulary and the pleasure it offers as a read-aloud."—Reading Time, Journal of the Children's Book Council of Australia
