Sweater inching ever higher to cover his face as it gets closer to his turn to sing at the talent shows the boy isn’t one bit scared. When it is his turn the story is a bit mixed up because as he steps up to take his turn two boys booed, but all the others were clapping as he takes a bow. This is a lift-the-flap book demonstrating confidence to do things that may be a bit scary.
