Louisa May Pickett's one and only talent is Show and Tell. At her old school, she was voted 'The Most Interesting Person' three years in a row. But little does she know that the kids at Bobbin Head Primary have a few interesting items of their own for Show and Tell!
When Louisa May Picket arrives at her new school, all she has to offer for Show and Tell is . a juggling mouse, meat-eating plants, a parachute, a singing chair, a painting squid, and an extremely rare pink polar bear that walks the high wire upside down while singing 'We all Live in a Yellow Submarine' backwards.
But when her classmates appear unimpressed and constantly outdo her attempts with their own amazing stories, she feels like 'The Most Boring Person in Class'. Poor Louisa May! How can she ever compete?
She finally abandons all pretense to amaze her potential new friends and gives up; but then she is rewarded and relieved to find that in order to impress, she need do nothing other than be herself.
