Jackson Magnet is having a talent show. Howie is excited because everyone--mothers, fathers, grandparents, neighbors, teachers, kids, even the Channel Seven News Team--will be there to hear her sing. But at the final dress rehearsal in front of the entire school, she gets so scared she can't perform her song. Will Howie make it through Opening Night?
In the third book of her Jackson Friends series, Michelle Edwards uses gentle humor to transform a familiar experience into a moving and triumphant story that's just right for beginning readers.
MICHELLE EDWARDS is the author-illustrator of the books in the Jackson Friends series as well as several acclaimed picture books, including Chicken Man, winner of the National Jewish Book Award. She lives in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
