This book is FANTASTIC because it is all about Limelight Larry. In fact, it is SO fantastic that Larry doesn't think there is any room on the pages for anyone but him! But after Larry kicks everyone out, he wonders what IS the point of showing off all by yourself? It certainly isn't much fun. Introducing . . . Limelight Larry, an unforgettable new star in the world of children's books!
