Description


Desmond likes to disappear, blend into the background, and hide in the cleverest of places. But when a new student named Gloria arrives at his school, Desmond finds himself noticed for the first time. Can Gloria help Desmond get used to the life in the spotlight?
 
Anna Alter’s charming story is an original and reassuring take on overcoming shyness.

About the Author


ANNA ALTER, like Desmond, was terrified of the spotlight when she was a child. She graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design, where she studied illustration. Her books for children include What Can You Do with an Old Red Shoe? and Abigail Spells, which Kirkus Reviews called “a winsome tale [that] demonstrates the value of friendship during the trials and travails of life.”
Originally from Virginia, Anna lives in western Massachusetts, where she visits schools to speak about her work. You can visit her on the Web at www.annaalter.com.
