So when auditions are held for the school play, they both decide to try out for the lead role of Cinderella. But starring in the school play is one thing they can’t do together, and when Margie is given the role, Evie is left to cope with her frustration and jealousy alone.
"Waber has given an original twist to the familiar theme of the test of friendship."
"An entertaining and subtly edifying portrait of a robust friendship."
"The book gets to the heart of what is important to children, and the color illustrations are vintage Waber with great facial expressions and humorous, child-friendly images."
