Need a light, fun, funny read? Everyone knows to turn to Dan Gutman. Even in a book that starts out with town-flattening tornado, a reader can expect to find appealing characters in realistic–but still entertaining–situations.
The Talent Show takes place in Cape Bluff, Kansas, where an elementary school talent show intersects with a famous pop star and the second major tornado in less than a year. Will Julia ever dance on her own? Will Paul defy the authorities with his “risque” song? Will Don get over his stage fright? Will R.Akoon become the first white, 3rd-grade rapper? Will Elke . . . wait, where’s Elke?
Spend a low-key hour or two with this quick read, and you’re sure to finish with a smile on your face.
