Tommy is so excited. His first grade class is putting on a play of Peter Rabbit and he's sure to get the starring role. But in his enthusiasm, Tommy talks too much in class, and so his teacher decides that he should play Mopsy instead-and Mopsy doesn't have any lines! Tommy is disappointed, but he decides to use what he has learned about "stage presence" in Miss Leah's tap dance class. By reacting to everything Peter does, Tommy ends up stealing the show. It's clear to everyone that he's stagestruck!
Like his bestselling picture books drawn from his own childhood such as The Art Lesson, The Baby Sister, Nana Upstairs & Nana Downstairs and Tom, Stagestruck is full of the warmth and humor of Tomie's memories, and kids will identify with this hilarious school play based on a favorite story.
