Blumenthal, Deborah. CHARLIE HITS IT BIG

Last month when I was at ALA, I took one of those tours of LA that brought us by the stars' homes and famous sites. We didn't see any famous people but we might have seen tomorrow's stars! You never know. We also drove by the studio where some of those star maker shows are filmed. All these people heading out to LA in hopes of becoming a star. Or at least making a living at it.

So what does that have to do with today's podcast? Well, the book is about a hamster who leaves home hoping to make it big in Hollywood. Does he have better luck than the majority of kids who head west?

Blumenthal, Deborah. CHARLIE HITS IT BIG

He's just your average guinea pig. Isn't he? When Sophie wakes up and finds him gone, she is so sad. He's gone to Hollywood to check things out. And Hollywood certainly likes him. He gets a part in a movie? Wow, he sure hits it big.
