Max always plays second fiddle to his sister Francine: “When they play explorers, Francine is the leader and Max carries the supplies.” One day, Max comes up with his own idea to play circus. Immediately, Francine takes over and announces she will be “star of the show” and Max can be her assistant.But little Max isn’t ready to be thrown out of the limelight just yet, and what ensues is a comedic climax fueled by two strong-willed children. As their big top crumbles around them, can these two iron out their differences? After all, the show must go on!Star of the Show is a beautifully rendered picture book illustrated by Tony Weinstock.
