In the story The Talent Show From the Black Lagoon a boy goes to school and the teacher said they they were doing a talent show. The boy doesn't know what to do for the talent show. His mother said to play the piano. The boy had a bad dream about playing the piano at the talent show. He did it anyways. His show turned out good.

My favorite part of the story is when the boy has a dream. I like it because it is funny. My favorite character is the boy because he does not know what to do for the talent show. This story relates to my life because sometimes I don't know what to do. This story has pictures and they help tell the story.

I think others should read this because it is funny and it will make you want to learn to play the piano.
