Description

Gabby is back for another fun word-filled adventure! Gabby and her friend Roy are in the backyard, setting up a stage for their play about "Queen Gabriella" - but they are missing a few crucial items. Using her magic letter book, Gabby assembles letters to create words that will transform into various props. When they finally have everything they need, they are ready to perform for their elderly nextdoor- neighbour, Mrs. Oldham.

Editorial Review

"Author Joyce Grant's love of reading and lifelong support of children's literacy shines through this jubilantly playful story, brought to life with uniquely energetic illustrations."
Midwest Book Review

"There are numerous elements in this picture book that will keep young children entertained. As in the previous Gabby story, a funny little blue bird appears or is hidden on each page. Many other creatures, such as the cat and the frog from the first book, also appear throughout the illustrations. The children's play also appears as a story within the story when the font of the text changes in that section of the book to introduce The Perils of Queen Gabriella. Gabby, Drama Queen comes to an end with the children and their very entertained neighbour sitting down to tea.
Recommended."
