When Emma Hall's school announces that it's going to stage a production of Samson & Delilah, Emma feels slightly sick - being up on stage in front of everybody really isn't her style. It's much more the kind of thing that Emma knows her best friend, Kate, would be brilliant at (Kate is brilliant at everything and in fact if she weren't so nice, they definitely wouldn't be friends!). But something inside Emma is niggling her, making her want to be up there treading the boards and smelling the grease paint with everyone else (she has a sneaking suspicion it's something to do with genes inherited from her very over-the-top mother - dramatic sigh!) Just as suspected the lead role of Delilah goes to Kate and Emma gets given the particularly un-glamorous and please-let-the-ground-swallow-me-up role of Third Donkey! Losing the lead to her best mate, Emma can just about handle but when she starts to lose Kate to a boy (honestly!) Emma feels very rejected. When her other friends are completely unsympathetic (Nicky busy gleefully tormenting the younger kids and Peter starting to act very strangely around her these days) Emma wonders how on earth she is going to survive this year - let alone as third donkey!

Karen Ball grew up in Chesterfield, Derbyshire with her two sisters, Mandy and Tracy, and their dogs Cindy, Tess, and Amber. She went to Lancaster University to study English Literature, before moving to London for her first editorial job. She has worked as an editor of both children's and grown-up's books. Her hobbies are cycling, cooking, yoga, gardening, and writing. She lives in Walthamstow, London. This is her first children's book.From AudioFile:
A modernized play about Samson and Delilah brings out comical behavior in pupils and teachers. Emma shocks herself by really wanting to play Delilah, and she's disappointed when her best friend lands the part. Narrator Kate Harbour is super, presenting delightful girls and boys and eccentric teachers. She's especially humorous as Mrs. Rogers, an older teacher who surprises Emma with her ability to have everyone towing the line. Harbour's school custodian and the teacher who makes papier maché cacti (for the play) wonderfully round out the story. The girls' friendship is also tried as Kate gets the first boyfriend. Much about growing up is covered with compassion and humor. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
