This book is an excellent example of what short, snappy pieces of historical fiction are capable of. It's a quick, interesting story that children can relate to (the dream of meeting a famous movie star, chores, earning money, dealing with responsibility, etc) that then goes on to supplement its lack of scholarly literacy through nonfiction background information at the end of the story and some quick (doable!) activities that can help a child "envision" themselves during the same time period.
