Three For A Girl Four For A Boy – written by Marisa O Mahony
Skinny Mary loves the outdoors, working with her Dad and generally being a tomboy. But a family secret revealed and her impending confirmation look set to bring her reluctantly into the grown up world of responsibility and hard choices. Her dilemma is being shared by an unlikely partner: a young male magpie that is learning that he may not be the bird he wants to be.
When the thieving magpies live up to their reputation, Skinny Mary makes a climb for truth that may turn out to be more dangerous than she realises.
