Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the moment the telegraph in the general store taps out a message that a man from the moving pictures is coming to choose someone to be in his picture show, folks are talking and arguing and secretly dreaming about the big day. And by the time it arrives, the whole town seems to have gone crazy Eight-year-old Cricket has never seen a moving picture before, but she thinks it must be something mighty special to make people behave so foolishly. Karen Ackerman gleefully captures the follies of the human spirit in this charmingly nostalgic tale about movie madness and visions of fame. Paul Mombourquette's vibrant art infuses the memorable cast of characters with depth, humour, personality — and just a touch of nonsense.

Synopsis:

A charmingly nostalgic tale about movie madness and visions of fame.
