Summary from Random House Children's Publishers
It's time for the Honeypot Hll Talent Contest! Poppy and Honey are so excited, but among the many acts how will Poppy stand out? Can Grandpa and a new banjo-playing boy help Poppy to wow the judges and dance her way to a win?
This cute series which is all about nurturing your inner princess continues with this tale of Poppy helping show others being nice to everyone is not only a pleasant quality to have, but can make you more friends too! It's sad yet true part of life that, both at school and anywhere else, if someone looks or does something that seems outside the stupid acceptable social norm than they are thought of as odd. Poppy learns odd is good! There wasn't anything wrong with the story, it's just that this one didn't quite have enough pizzaz for full marks.
