Celestine, Drama Queen: 09/15/10
Harriet chose Celestine, Drama Queen by Penny Ives at a recent trip to the library. She was drawn to the duckling dressed in a pink tutu.
Celestine is very much like Olivia the Pig. She has the same flare for drama and personal expression. When the school play is announced she wants to have the most important role. Like Olivia in Olivia Acts Out, Celestine doesn't get the lead role but she makes the most of what she's given.
Although my daughter chose the book she didn't sit through to the end of the story. I think she found Celestine a little too demanding and melodramatic.
