Miss Brilliant is full of ideas. With her students she celebrates everything: teeth, corn, mummies, spiders -- and plays! Only Jose isn't interested in "Mary Had a Little Lamb," or being a Brilliant Player, or even his surprise role. But as Jose learns about drama and tension and working with his classmates, he finds that he, too, has his own special place in Miss Brilliant's class and in her heart. Aliki has created a memorable teacher and a class full of personalities that all readers will want to join.

Cute and positive story of a class play. All about inclusion and trying your best. I plan to steal the idea of serving tests on a silver platter from this book.
