"A schoolyard squirrel and Pet Rat try to watch the student production Cinderella but end up stealing the show when they accidentally end up on stage"--

Book Synopsis

Loveably chaotic Twitch the squirrel and Sweetie the Library Rat accidentally make their stage debuts in the school play in this hilarious 8 Class Pets chapter book series.

When Twitch discovers the kids at school are putting on a Cinderella play, he can't believe his luck. He loves good stories! But how to watch the play undetected? He convinces friend Sweetie the library rat to join his adventure to the auditorium, but of course it doesn't go as planned! Twitch and Sweetie will go behind the curtain and even above stage before the day is over in this fourth book in the celebrated series.

With energetic illustrations accompanying the short, hilarious chapters, told from Twitch and Sweetie's alternating points of view, Squirrel on Stage is a perfect pick for young readers just starting to seek out longer texts--or a great read-aloud. For aspiring thespians, Squirrel on Stage also includes tips kids can use to put on their own play.

Review Quotes

"Alternating chapters between Twitch's and Sweetie's points of view allows both characters to develop fully and shine. . . . Readers will go nuts (mostly acorns) for this book!"--Kirkus Reviews
