AbstractHistoryArchive 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. In each book in the series Lily ‘goes method’ to inhabit a theatrical character and learns something about the lives of others and her own along the way.

'Lily is gleefully bold, charmingly flawed and feels totally believable. She looks for the positives in everyone and anyone, and celebrates them! She is loyal, funny, kind, and though becoming different characters can wreak havoc on her world and everyone in it, Lily always learns something from the experience and always strives to treat others with kindness and respect. 

'Orphan Annie, from the musical Annie, has a hard-knock life. FACT! ' (Publications)
