Second Banana

The kids in Mrs. Millet’s class are putting on their annual nutrition pageant. Every kid plays a food. Every kid gets a line. It is a big deal. But this year, there aren’t quite enough parts for everybody. So the class is cast: Fish, Cheese, Broccoli, Blueberry, Banana, and... Second Banana.

Second Banana feels rotten. She wants to be the ONLY banana! In this deliciously original school story, Blair Thornburgh and Kate Berube recognize the dreadful disappointment that a casting list can cause — as well as the power of friendship, creative thinking, and a good attitude to turn a rotten situation into one that’s quite ap-peel-ing.

"[When] she confesses her resentment to First Banana, who, far from reveling in time onstage, wishes she could be anywhere else; in reaction, Second Banana switches from mourning her obscurity to trying to ease First Banana’s anxiety.... A funny, gentle nudge in the direction of being a better banana." — Publishers Weekly
