The precocious narrator is Talulah Shadrick who always knew she would be an actress.
At age six she appeared on stage and by eight she qualified to join the Screen Actors Guild. At 12 her credits include a Toyota TV commercial, a voiceover for a Nintendo game, and a recurring role on the last season of the popular cable TV program "Veep."
Target ages are 7-11; younger and older readers also enjoy it.
