Lucky Lazlo

By Steve Light
Illustrated by Steve Light

It’s curtains up on a production from Steve Light, whose intricate pen-and-ink style sets the stage for a high-speed chase through the theatre!

From Steve Light, the creator of Have You Seen My Dragon?, Have You Seen My Monster? and Swap!, comes a riotous romp backstage at the theatre! Lazlo is in love. So, with the perfect red rose in hand, he sets off to the theatre, where the girl of his dreams is starring in Alice in Wonderland. But when a cat snatches the flower and dashes backstage, Lazlo is in for a bit of bad luck. And it’s no wonder, since, at the Peacock Theatre, they’ve broken every superstitious rule in the book. The chase is on – past the tailor, into the orchestra, over the prop table … even through the Mad Hatter’s tea party! Will Lazlo catch the cheeky kitty in time to present the flower to his lady love?

  • In the back pages, the author describes the numerous superstitions related to theatre that appear in the book, and invites readers to spot them.
  • There is a silent Alice in Wonderland subplot and readers are treated to an array of characters from Lewis Carroll’s classic.
  • Treating readers to an insider’s view of the workings of a majestic theatre, this is the perfect book for all budding actors and actresses!
