Booklist Review: "Gr. 2-5. The thrill of putting on a show is once again at the center of a story about Grace, and, as in the picture book Amazing Grace (1991) and the chapter book Starring Grace (2000), the drama is as much about family, friends, and jealous rivals as it is about what happens on stage. Although Grace at first envies Crishell, the smart new girl in class, the girls get close when they write the class play, a fractured fairy tale that changes Sleeping Beauty to Waking Beauty, with a protagonist who doesn't just passively wait to be rescued. In a nice parallel, Grace and her friends decide to stand up to the grown-ups in their lives, and they draw up a children's rights charter asking their parents to talk to them about changes that affect them. The type is spacious for new readers and for reading aloud, and the occasional black-and-white illustrations include a close-up of Grace as the Wicked Fairy on stage as well as warm scenes of the neighborhood. --Hazel Rochman Copyright 2003 Booklist"
