Willow's whispers are simply too quiet for anybody to hear. Her voice is unheard by everyone and consequently she rarely gets what she wants or needs. One day, she solves her problem by speaking through a microphone that she created from recyclables. When the paper microphone falls apart, Willow is forced to think of a more permanent solution. Simple but appealing cartoon-style illustrations accentuate the text.
