Overview

It’s December at Oak Glen Primary School and all EllRay can think about is Christmas. As far as he’s concerned, Christmas is the best—no school, presents, fun parties, and lots of cookies! But before EllRay can celebrate with his family, he must lead half the school in the Winter Wonderland assembly.

How tough can it be to memorize a few lines? Very tough, especially when EllRay’s soon-to-be ex-friend gives him a challenge to perform onstage. If he completes the challenge, he’ll save his friendship…but he’ll also ruin the assembly. EllRay is in for a not-so holly jolly time.
