Ruby is so loud, she drives everyone crazy. When her teacher suggests that Ruby might make life easier by turning down the volume, Ruby turns it up instead - and drives away all her schoolfriends.
Ruby feels really blue - until Bernard and Zelda, the saxophonist and blues singer living in the basement, offer to give her singing lessons.
Not only does Ruby learn to be quieter, she also learns to sing with feeling - everything from the sharp sounds of the city to the gentle notes of an evening breeze - and on the day of the school concert, she's awesome!
