Picture Book Celebrates An Introvert


Mary Wrightly
We’re pleased to see that, even though she faces a major challenge now that she’s been named  the editor of the NYT Book Review, Pamela Paul is still able to write her weekly children’s book column in the daily NYT.

This week, she devotes the column to a single picture book, Mary Wrightly, So Politely, by Shirin Yim Bridges, illus. by Maria Monescillo (HMH, 4/16/14), the story of a quiet little girl who finally musters the courage to speak up for herself (and her baby brother). Paul calls it a “smart, affecting and original story.”

    I think you’re confusing “shy” with “introvert.” Not all introverts are shy.
