Publisher Comments:

Small kid. Big Stage.

Does EllRay have a talent to put on show for the entire school?

When EllRay and his friends hear about the school talent show, theyand#8217;re not impressed. Theyand#8217;re too old for that stuff. But their teacher, Mrs. Sanchez, isnand#8217;t so quick to let her students off the hook. Five students absolutely must try-out, and EllRay somehow ends up being one of them. Now he has to figure out something heand#8217;s talented atand#133;.like, maybe magic?

But now the pressureand#8217;s on. Itand#8217;s up to EllRay to take the stage and show his classmates and the whole school that heand#8217;s not only talented but magic.

Synopsis:

Itand#8217;s December at Oak Glen Primary School and all EllRay can think about is Christmas. As far as heand#8217;s concerned, Christmas is the bestand#151;no school, presents, fun parties, and lots of cookies! But before EllRay can celebrate with his family, he must lead half the school in the Winter Wonderland assembly.

How tough can it be to memorize a few lines? Very tough, especially when EllRayand#8217;s soon-to-be ex-friend gives him a challenge to perform onstage. If he completes the challenge, heand#8217;ll save his friendship...but heand#8217;ll also ruin the assembly. EllRay is in for a not-so holly jolly time.and#160;

Synopsis:

Things are going just swimmingly for EllRay. He's finally getting along with most of the kids at school. He's even getting along with his family. But then everything comes screeching to a halt when his younger sister accidently overfeeds the classroom goldfish EllRay was supposed to be taking care of over Spring vacation. What is EllRay going to tell his teacher and the kids in his third-grade class? Fortunately, most of them are sympathetic. But not bossy Cynthia. She sees this as an opportunity to blame EllRay for her own mess-ups. Must EllRay now walk the plank for stuff that he didn't do?
