Can a pretzel have talent?
When Mr. Macaroni plans a class talent show, Pretzel Peyton wanders home from school in search of the answer. She is, after all, just an ordinary pretzel stick—or so she thinks.
Join Peyton on a snack-filled journey as she encounters friends like Fruit Snack Frankie, the Cotton Candy twins, and Seaweed Samira. Discover how a seemingly ordinary pretzel stick steps up to save the day and learns that being a pretzel is nothing short of extraordinary.
A heartwarming story of self-empowerment with an underlying message of friendship, The Talented Pretzel has a treat for every taste bud.
