Description

Now planned as a Broadway musical from the Tony Award-winning producer of "Hamilton" and "Rent"!

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist, playwright, screenwriter, and illustrator of The Phantom Tollbooth, Jules Feiffer, comes a witty story about following your dreams.

Jimmy is bad at sports and not much better at school, but he sure can draw terrific cartoons. And his dream, like that of his Uncle Lester who writes flop Broadway musicals, is to be recognized for what he loves doing most.

"Wickedly funny... reminiscent of Roald Dahl's edgy lampoons." --ALA Booklist (starred review)

"A witty story that combines a comfortably oldfangled tone with up-to-the-minute characterizations and a playful use of graphics." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
