Synopsis

A duck? Mickey would much rather be a spider, but things look up once he starts working on his costume and practicing his part. Disaster strikes, though, when his costume is ruined on opening night! Everyone in Mickey's family pitches in, and they create a new costume just in time. This spirited ode to diversity, imagination, elementary school drama, and yes, the duck, is sure to strike a familiar chord with anyone who has ever been involved with a class play. Curtain up!
 

About Judith Caseley

Judith Caseley says, "When I was a little girl, I fell in love with Abraham Lincoln. I was drawn to the kindness and melancholy I saw in his face. My sister Jean and I prayed to a framed portrait of him that hung on our bedroom wall. To this day, when I see Lincoln's likeness on the wall of a school auditorium, my heart lifts with gladness or my eyes fill with tears. I remember the fierce secrets we told him, the joys and sorrows that were for his ears only. It was a private act of communion, and we called him A. L." Judith Caseley is the author-artist of such favorite picture books as "On the Town: A Community Adventure; Bully; Mama, Coming and Going; "and "Dear Annie." She lives on Long Island, New York, with her two children.

The story goes on at some length, ending with the four members of Mickey's family going out for ice cream--""Four different flavors!"" Despite the appealing energy of her brightly hued watercolor, colored pencil and black-pen art, Caseley gives a lackluster performance.
