A hilariously, ridiculous story with a cast of animals who want to be in the spotlight but things don't seem be going very well!

Last minute rehearsals for the dance show are not quite going Miss Rilla's way. There is a sloth that is always sleeping, an elephant that keeps getting his tutu twist and a crocodile who is a little bit too hungry—not the recipe for a shining performance! Then, when the curtains roll up, things just get worse. . . it is a nightmare! However, all is not lost and Mrs. Sleepy Sloth hits the stage with her three-toed tip-tap groove—it looks as though she has been practicing in her dreams!

The chaos of this story will appeal to young children and would make the perfect addition to story time!
