A spiky story in rhyme about a girl who has a unique view of the world and just can't be made to fit in! The darkly humorous illustrations by Drahos Zak make an irresistible package.
At Mary's fine school there was only one rule -
Do everything everyone said
And rule number two, introduced by Miss Poole
Was NEVER to stand on your head.
Mary is an upside-down girl and there is just no stopping her.
The True Story of Mary, told in 31 verses, is a celebration of what is wayward, wilful and extraordinary in every child.
