Sylvie is a young ventriloquist with a big dream: winning the school talent show. But when she gets to the stage, she can’t find her friend, Smoulder the Stega-Dragon!


Before their hilarious performance is over, Sylvie and Smoulder will share a lesson about the most important performance of all—being yourself.

Sylvia Fletcher is a professional ventriloquist who started learning to throw her voice at the age of six! Her early heroes were the magical children’s show Sesame Street, the
legendary Paul Winchell, and the charming Shari Lewis. This book is her second, and it tells the story of a talent show she performed in when she was still in elementary school. Sylvia tells even more stories on her Web site at mylipsdontmove.com.

A native of Los Angeles, Sylvia now lives with her husband, Chris, in Ballston Spa, NY. She has entertained thousands of adults and children all over the world. Her love of performing for children inspired her to write this book.

The Adventures of Sylvie & The Magic Trunk: Smoulder the Stega-Dragon is the second in a series of books about ‘Sylvie’, the young girl who learns to use her special talent for ventriloquism to make people happy.
