Lola Levine is taking center stage in this new chapter book series.
Levine...drama queen? Lola's class is learning about the fine art of
acting, and will put on a play in front of parents and the entire
school. But after Lola gets stage fright at her audition, she's cast as
"Squirrel 2," a non-speaking part. Lola is more than a little
disappointed, and calls on her Bubbe for advice and comfort. But when an
unexpected turn of events happen on opening night, Lola gives "Squirrel
2" her own special stamp and makes it a play to remember.
"Readers will find much to love in Lola and her nurturing family. Dominguez's illustrations provide just the right touch to enhance the story."
—School Library Journal
"Readers who first met Lola in Lola Levine Is Not Mean will be pleased to see her in a new role. This sequel should win her new fans."
