“Third-grader Marty McGuire prefers fishing in the creek to putting on pink frilly dresses and acting ladylike. When she is chosen for the lead in her class play and must wear a tiara, Marty determines to put her own twist on the production, with hilarious results. Messner has introduced a spunky new character that young readers will take to their hearts and eagerly await her next adventure.”

Description


A fun, accessible chapter-book debut from an exciting new talent--simultaneous hardcover-paperback and audio launch!

FORMAT: 2 CDs, Unabridged
NARRATOR: TBA

Marty McGuire would rather spend recess catching frogs in the pond than playing dress-up with the other girls in third grade. So when her teacher casts Marty as the princess in the class play, Marty's absolutely, positively sure that there's been a huge mistake. But after a special lesson in the art of improvisation, Marty comes up with her OWN plan to IMPROVE the play: Why use stuffed-animal frog onstage when a live one would be so much better? In the end, Marty's one-of-a-kind performance makes for an unforgettable show. Maybe a tomboy princess CAN live happily ever after, after all!
