Max wants to be the star in his class’s Christmas play. And he is the star . . . of Bethlehem. Upset with his small part, Max tries to help by painting scenery or singing with the chorus, but those are not his jobs. The day of the play finally arrives, and when the light shines on Max—and Max alone—he realizes just how big his part is!
I am the author of the New York Times best-selling picture book The Littlest Pilgrim along with six other Littlest tales - and more to come! I’ve also written three middle grade novels, a Pixar picture book, and four books in Giada de Laurentiis’s Recipe for Adventure series. My latest project is an illustrated chapter book series called Wild Fairies. I live in Los Angeles where I eat lots of tacos while wrangling my two adorable kids and our crazy dog with my husband, Joe.
