This delightful review of Digger and Daisy Star in a Play just came in from 6-year-old Raif: Digger and Daisy are two dogs who are brother and sister. They are going to be in a play at school. The problem is that Differ wants to have a talking part, but he is just a tree. Daisy is going to be a princess, but she only has two words to say. Digger says the other people’s words everywhere — in the bathtub, at the playground, on the bus, and everywhere she goes. Daisy keeps telling him that he is a tree, and trees do not talk! Digger tells Daisy to say her words over and over so she will not forget, but she doesn’t because she only has two words. But the night of the play, she forgets them! Can Digger help her out? I like this book because it’s fun and silly. Why does anyone have to be a tree? They could just cut the tree out of cardboard and stand it up! But it’s a good thing that Digger was in the tree because he saved the play. This book is easy to read and I could read it by myself. I like the pictures because they are colorful and funny.

Laurie Ann Thompson was thrilled to learn that Emmanuel’s Dream will be performed on stage in Maine by the Portland Stage as part of their Play Me a Story Theater program for kids. It was also selected by the Chicago Public Library as one of the Best Informational Books for Younger Readers of 2015! After a flurry of amazing school visits covering grades K-12, book signings, interactive workshops, a Google Hangout, and in-person public appearances this past month, Laurie is looking forward to staying home for a change and working on the first book in her upcoming series, Two Truths and a Lie (co-authored with Ammi-Joan Paquette). Laurie’s dog, Prim, says it’s about time, but she wishes she didn’t have to share Laurie’s lap with the laptop.
