Rubie wanted to whistle
more than anything else in the world.

She could do lots and lots of other great things,
but whistling wasn’t one of them, no matter how much she tried.

Just when she was about to give up, Rubie had her seventh
birthday party and something magical happened. 

It is always good to believe in yourself.
