The Ellie McDoodle Diaries: Book 5
The Show Must Go On
One girl. One sketchbook. One whole-school production
and one very, very angry best friend.
When Ellie McDoodle signs up to help with her school's production of
The Wizard of Oz, she never expected it to be so much work! There are
sets to help paint, costumes to plan, and then there's casting. When
her best friend Mo gets cast as Wicked Witch--and not the coveted Dorothy--
Mo and Ellie have their first big fight. As the student director, Ellie should
have helped her get the starring role, right? Mo thinks so.
Skip with Ellie through her first big drama production at school. Just like
the main characters in Oz, Ellie and her friends will find
courage, heart, brains, and that there's no place like home!

"I am always on the lookout for great books to serve as models

-- A Year of Reading Blog
"Part journal, part graphic novel, all fun (with echoes
of Harriet the Spy)."
