Books featured in the production include: Amazing Grace Young Grace attempts to break stereotypes in an effort to play the title character in her school's production of Peter Pan. Borreguita and the Coyote This classic Mexican tale of a little lamb, or borreguita, who uses her wits to escape hungry coyote is based on the book by Verna Aardema. If You Give a Mouse a Cookie A boy shares his snack with a hungry, demanding mouse, and learns a hilarious lesson in cause-and-effect. Imogene's Antlers Young Imogene is delighted to wake up with "cool" antlers, but soon discovers that her parents and school principals do not share her enthusiasm. Martha Speaks Based on the book by Susan Meddaugh, this is the story of a family dog who becomes outspoken after dining on alphabet soup. Math Curse Based on the book by Jon Scieszka, this story playfully addresses the phobia some kids have when tackling seemingly difficult math problems.
