Matthew Forsythe meets Richard Scarry in this stunning debut that celebrates embracing your voice and finding a place in your community!

In a town bursting with music, everyone marches to the beat of their own drum. Except for a quiet mouse named Bell, who doesn’t yet know what her sound is. She tries honking, tooting, strumming, even tapping, just like she hears her neighbors doing. But none of it feels quite right! None of it feels like Bell. Figuring out her place in the village, it turns out, might just mean finding her own voice first. 

Lizzy O’Donnell’s sumptuous storytelling delicately demonstrates that we find true harmony within our communities when we embrace our truest selves.

About the Author

Lizzy O’Donnell lives in South Jersey, just across the river from Philadelphia, where they received a BFA in illustration at University of the Arts. There they honed their own artistic voice, and their flair for vintage-inspired palettes, and discovered their love of all things picture book–related. They went on to work at their alma mater, teaching illustration classes for both high school and undergraduate students. Lizzy works full-time on developing stories and illustrations in their cozy home studio.
