Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Inside her sparkly, purple, silver, pink, and magenta shoulder bag, Sassy has everything—colorful, glittery nail polish, candy, stickers, and now a silver secret. Although Sassy's excited about her secret, she is not ready to reveal it to anyone, even her best friend, Jasmine. Meanwhile the school's fourth grade class is putting on a musical about saving the earth. Sassy would love to have a part in the play, but she cannot carry a tune. Mr. Woods, the music teacher, assigns a part in the show to everyone. Sassy is the stage manager. She takes on the job of being in charge, but she really wants to wear one of the beautiful purple dresses that are the performers' costumes. Will she find a way onto the stage? Fans of the "Sassy" series will enjoy this spirited episode written by an award-winning author. Included at the back of the book are tips and ideas to help save the earth. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
School Library Journal
Gr 3–5—Inside her trademark "Sassy Sack," spunky and diminutive Sassy keeps everything anyone could possibly use, from batteries to silver nail polish. However, her bag also contains one very big Silver Secret. The fourth grader wants nothing more than to participate in her school choir's musical and wear one of the shimmery purple dresses the performers wear. Unfortunately, she can't carry a tune, and she is initially disappointed with her role of stage manager. As Sassy directs and organizes the participants, though, she realizes that her strengths are needed and appreciated even if she is behind the curtain. When a fire breaks out in the auditorium, the treasured Sassy Sack goes missing and along with it, her Silver Secret—a piccolo given to her by her grandmother. As the story unfolds, Sassy learns that everyone has an area in which they shine, and she becomes skilled in bringing that out in others and in herself. Reluctant readers and those looking for quick, fun chapter books will find the African-American child appealing. This story has some sparkle, but isn't a true gem.—Michele Shaw, Quail Run Elementary School, San Ramon, CA
