But how is Nate supposed to make his dreams come true when he’s stuck in Jankburg, Pennsylvania, where no one (except his best pal Libby) appreciates a good show tune? With Libby’s help, Nate plans a daring overnight escape to New York. There’s an open casting call for “E.T.: The Musical,” and Nate knows this could be the difference between small-town blues and big-time stardom.



  • Picture Book: Amazing Grace – 51-SeFp8OfL._SL250_Grace loves stories, whether they’re from books, movies, or the kind her grandmother tells. So when she gets a chance to play a part in Peter Pan, she knows exactly who she wants to be.





  • Picture Book: Backstage Cat51HDwv5BjOL._SL250_ A runaway kitty named Simon introduces kids to what it takes to put on a show and have a moment in the spotlight. It’s a kid-pleasing peek at a fascinating world the draws both stardom-seekers and those who prefer to remain behind the scenes.



Reaching the Peak:
