Poor Frederick Finch! No matter what he does, he just can’t seem to keep quiet. Especially when he’s trying to win a contest at the state fair. Everyone else in his family always comes home from the fair with ribbons. But not Frederick. No matter how hard he tries, he never wins a thing.
But what if there were a contest where loudness could help instead of harm?
This comic tale, uproariously illustrated, carries a simple message: Be yourself! Even if that means being loud. VERY loud.
