I love Steve Light's illustrations. I wished I liked the story more. I enjoyed the back matter with all the stage superstitions.

This is a story that must be read at least twice! Read it once to enjoy the story. Then after reading the backmatter about theater superstitions, go back and read it again!

Could be a good recommendation for a K-2 easy reader alternate! Love the illustration.
