Description
From the duo of Alison McGhee and Scott Menchin comes a hilarious
tale of a first recital -- and a charming ode to chutzpah and creative flair.
Practice makes perfect. And for a little girl facing her first recital of "Dance of the Wood Elves," so do artistry, imagination (those wood elves sure love to dance ), and lucky underwear for good measure. Is she nervous as she waits and waits for her turn on stage? Hoo boy, no She's as cool as a cucumber Every child who has felt the pressure of the spotlight will smile at this comical tale of bravado that turns a onenote performance into an improvisation worthy of a standing ovation. Splendissimo.
