Loud Emily

Illustrated by Nancy Carpenter

Poor Emily. She doesn't mean to be loud, but whenever she says anything in her Emily voice, plates shatter, neighbors are astonished, and birds are frightened right out of the trees. It seems like there's nowhere she fits in. Until the day she sees a ship with a sign that reads: LOUD HELP NEEDED. NOW. So Emily sets sail for an adventure on the high seas, where perhaps there is a place for her after all...
