Description

When Mrs. Byrd tells Gilbert's class that they're going to be doing plays about famous people, Gilbert's heart sinks. Plays make him nervous what if he forgets his lines? So when he lands the role of George Washington in a play about the cherry tree, he's determined to do it without any mistakes. But when his most important prop goes missing right before the show, Gilbert loses his cool and looks to blame anyone but himself.
The seventh story about this most beloved opossum is a wise and funny tale of truth and liesand butterflies!that's a perfect tie-in for President's Day, Independence Day, and school units on biography.
