Will Ruby Rose let a little thunder and lightning ruin her performance? With some swirling and twirling, Ruby Rose finds a way to star in the best recital ever!

About the Author
Rob Sanders is a writer who teaches and a teacher who writes. Every day he waltzes to Lockhart Elementary Magnet School in Brandon, Florida, to teach kids about books and words and reading and writing. Then he boogie-woogies back home to write books for children. On weekends and holidays you might find him boot-scooting with his dog, Baxter; hokey-pokeying at the beach with his great-nieces and -nephews; or cha-chaing with other children’s writers. Nothing makes his heart dance more than hearing boys and girls say, “Read it again!” Visit Rob’s website at www.robsanderswrites.com.
Debbie Ridpath Ohi writes and draws children’s books for a living. She has illustrated books by Judy Blume and Michael Ian Black and is the author-illustrator of Where Are My Books? She also illustrated Ruby Rose: Off to School She Goes. Secret fact: Debbie sometimes dances in her office when no one is looking. She lives in Toronto with her husband, Jeff.
