the 2nd Gabby book!…

…coming out this fall 2013!
 
Gabby and her friend Roy are in the back yard, 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 next-door-neighbour, Mrs. Oldham.
