The zany and much-beloved comedy-musical film about pint-sized rockers sticking it to the man is now an adorable picture book! For those about to read...we salute you!
When School of Rock premiered in 2003 it was an instant hit, and remained the highest grossing music-themed comedy of all time for over a decade. Now fans can enjoy the hilarious and heartwarming story in a whole new way!
It's another ordinary day at Horace Green elementary school, and the kids think they're getting another ordinary substitute teacher. But instead Dewey Finn, a washed-up musician with dreams of greatness, whisks them away on a totally rocking adventure. After overhearing the kids in music class, Dewey discovers how talented they are and realizes he has another chance at his greatest dream: winning the Battle of the Bands. But first, the kids have a lot to learn about not only rock 'n' roll, but themselves. Tamika overcomes her shyness and discovers her voice. Summer channels her over-achieving personality into her role as the band's manager. Lawrence learns that you don't have to "be cool" to make incredible music. But when the parents discover what Dewey has been teaching their kids, will the School of Rock ever have the chance to compete at Battle of the Bands? The spirit of the original film shines through, with all the iconic moments and laugh-out-loud lines recaptured.
This delightful story of a diverse and passionate group of kids coming into their own is a must-have for fans of the film, music-lovers, and anyone who's ever stuck it to the man!
