Description

Fancy Nancy meets Stage School in this adorable illustrated junior fiction series, starring Lily D! Lily D is a jump-off-the-page character who is full of beans, which is good news because she is very busy!


She does ballet on Mondays, tap on Tuesdays, acrobatics on Wednesdays, singing on Thursdays, and drama on Fridays. Drama is her favourite! It's Lily's dream is to become a performance artiste when she grows up. Lily D thinks of herself as a VAP (a Very Amazing Performer).


But Lily is no child star, she understands that success requires hard work and respect, neither of which can be achieved overnight.


Review

Lily just loves performing and is very serious about making sure she really understands the characters she plays. When her teacher tells her she is going to be Annie in the musical called Orphan Annie, she tells her family she is going to be an orphan for a week and they can’t help her.


This story is perfect for middle primary girls who just love performing. It is also has a wonderful message about learning how important family is and just how much they can help us be the best person we can be.


Lily D never gives up and always follows her dreams, and she is sure to inspire middle primary readers to do the same.
