In this second book Lola gets to try out for a play! She is very excited and practices her audition, but when the time comes, she gets stage fright. She still gets a part, a squirrel with no talking lines. But when the day of the play comes her role gets an upgrade and she improvise if she is going to save the day. Features numerous illustrations.
Now this one should have been the first book, I really liked it! It was authentic, super funny, and interesting. Even the cover is more engaging. Students will love the humor and the fast-paced story. I would add this book to my library for sure!
