Description


There’s nothing Amy likes more than being famous. It’s so fun to sign autographs for her bear, pose for photos with her parents, and she loves getting gold stars in class.

But when a new girl comes to school, suddenly she’s the superstar, and Amy is just super jealous.

It's not until they spend time together that they discover something more meaningful than fame—friendship.

Themes of sharing the spotlight, overcoming jealousy, and finding great friends take center stage in Amy is Famous, a picture book from renowned children’s author Barbara Bottner.

Chilling, propulsive narrative and unforgettable characters bring this wholly original take on Nazi-obsessed Germany into light as our former gymnast - turned "actress" Jewish Sarah plays strong, Aryan Ursula to rave reviews. She infiltrates a German school for party loyalist's children, where cruelty, cunning and spycraft are employed by everyone - good & evil. Relentlessly paced, this high-octane thriller will keep the pages turning and you thinking long after the book is over. Superb debut by newcomer Matt Killeen. - Maureen
