Sing With Me, Lucy McGee




Lucy McGee and Phillip Lee know they have just the song to win big the talent show, which attracts the attention of the ever-scheming Scarlett in this next installment of the generously illustrated Lucy McGee series.

The Songwriting Club at Slido Creek Elementary is going strong with Lucy and Phillip collaborating on new songs, playing the ukulele, and adding new friends to the group. But when Scarlett tries to pass off their hard work as her own, some hurtful words are exchanged, leaving Lucy, Scarlett, and Phillip looking at themselves differently. Is Lucy's hair too flat? Scarlett too tall? Phillip too short?

The members of the Songwriting Club will have to make amends before the night of the big talent show, if they still want to pull off a win. Short chapters filled with charming artwork on every spread make this a perfect pick for aspiring musicians and fans of Ivy & Bean and Junie B. Jones.

Back matter includes song lyrics and ukulele chords to encourage readers to play along and improvise.
