Marilou is bored: her house is boring, her room is boring, her chair is boring. Her friends can't come out to play and her dad is busy tinkering with an old radio. There isn't even anything on TV.
So Marilou picks up the phone and plays a prankjust to break her boredom. But one prank leads to another, and another, and another, and then to a whole lot of trouble. Finally, though, when Marilou has to be serious and brave, she manages to put the pranks behind her, surprising everyone including herself.
Marilou Cries Wolf is the story of a young prankster who learns there are times that it's important to be serious.
