Quvenzhané Wallis made history at the age of 6 when she became the youngest Best Actress nominee in history for her performance in Beasts of the Southern Wild. In this colorful and charming picture book, she recounts her evening attending the Academy Awards with her mother as only a 6-year-old can: "tap-tap-tapping" through her house in sparkly new shoes, singing along to the radio in the back of a "fancy car," sitting through a "looooong" ceremony, and getting rewarded at the end of the night, not with an Oscar, but with ice cream. Wallis's relatable perspective and Vanessa Brantley-Newton's bright colors make this a delightful book for kids! Recommended By Carrie L., Powells.com
