TONASKET – Book-It Repertory Theatre of Seattle will perform The Upside Down Boy at four North Central Regional Library branches this month, including Tonasket on Friday, Dec. 28.

The popular children’s book tells the story of a boy named Juan, whose family moves to a big city where he doesn’t speak the same language as other students. With the help of music, poetry, and an encouraging teacher, Juan finds his voice and footing in the upside down world that he soon considers home.
