This is a lot of two books, High School Musical and Dear Mr. Henshaw
High School Musical
Until Troy met Gabriella, his big dream was to win the basketball championship. But ever since they sang karaoke together on New Year's Eve, Troy can't get his mind off trying out for the lead role in the school musical- with Gabriella as his partner! Gabriella is struggling, too. The Scholastic Decathlon team could really use her help, but it would be fun to sing with Troy again. All their friends say it's a bad idea and that Troy and Gabriella should "stick to the status quo"
In their hearts, Troy and Gabriella know they've got the talent to play the lead roles in the musical, so why is everyone standing in their way? Will Troy and Gabriella follow their dreams of being on the stage? Or will they have to give it all up so that they can lead their teams to victory.
Based on the hit Disney Channel Movie, High School Musical starring Zac Efron, Corbin Bleu, Ashley Tisdale, and Vanessa Ann Hudgens.
Includes 8 pages of photos of the stars!
Dear Mr. Henshaw
When, in second grade, Leigh writes to an author to tell him how much he "licked" his book, he never suspects that he'll still be writing to him four years later. And he never imagines the kinds of things he'll be writing about:
Dear Mr. Henshaw, I am sorry I was rude in my last letter... Maybe I was mad about other things, like Dad forgetting to send this month's support payment. Mom tried to phone him at the trailer park where, as Mom says, he hangs his hat.
It's not easy being the new kid in town, with recently divorced parents, no dog anymore, and a lunch that gets stolen every day (all the "good stuff," anyway). Writing letters, first to the real Mr. Henshaw, and then in a diary to a pretend Mr. Henshaw, may be just what he needs.
This Newbery Medal-winning book, by the terrifically popular and prolific Beverly Cleary (Ramona Quimby, Age 8 and Runaway Ralph), exhibits a subtlety and sensitivity that will be appreciated by any youngster who feels lonely and troubled during the transition into adolescence. Winner of numerous other awards, including two Newbery Honors, Cleary teams up with Caldecott winner Paul O. Zelinsky, who creates a quiet backdrop for the realistic characters.
Dear Mr. Henshaw is in brand-new never read shape.
High School Musical is in near perfect shape, although is does have a slight crease but has never been read.
