    1. Hobbie, N. (2007). Priscilla superstar. New York: Little Brown and Company."Priscilla Superstar" by Nathaniel Hobbie and illustrated by Jocelyn Hobbie is a fun children's book about a little girl who wants to be a star. Priscilla and her best friend Bettina go and see Princess Rollerina perform and they to want to be stars just like her. They decide to join a rollerina class. Priscilla practices hard everyday to audition for the lead part in the play. But, Priscilla doesn't get the lead role and [...]

    2. My 5-year-old was delighted with his energetic, very pink little girl who seeks a hobby and finds her true calling at the roller ballet. It was a bit cutesy for me, but Priscilla is a likeable character (unlike Eloise, whom I can't stand) and it's a sweet book about doing your best no matter what role you're given.

    3. Priscilla and her best friend see 'Princess Rollerina' perform on stage, and want to be the stars themselves. Priscilla learns 'Hard work and practice. That's what it takes. And don't be afraid to make mistakes.' in the beginning. By the end of the book, she's learned an even more important lesson. I'm so glad this is one of my daughter's favorite books.

    4. I hate books where someone does not get the starring role and then it becomes all about how it was the starring role after all or how they go from understudy to lead. Suck it up and be a team player. Also the illustration is just ugly.

    5. Here is another children's book series I don't get. I personally do not care for the illustrations nor do I care for the style of writing. My girls will read these books but they certainly aren't favorites.

    6. I liked the message of this book, but my 4 and 7 year old didn't get it. We couldn't agree on whether or not she was really a star. I'd love to find another book where the point is more clear for little ones.

    7. This addition to the Priscilla series seems to end abruptly, and I just didn't think that the story was all that well developed or interesting. Written in the same style as the others though it still tickles the ears to read.

    8. This book shows that even if you are not the main character in the play, that doesn't mean you are not the superstar.

    9. Priscilla wants to be a superstar, but when she doesn't get the lead in her roller skating production, will she still feel like a star?
