From Kirkus Reviews:

When Max sees the sign announcing auditions for a peanut- butter commercial, he's sure he's a shoo-in. Older sister Rosalie, who takes acting lessons, makes him practice ``spreading, biting, chewing, swallowing, talking, and smiling'' until Max knows he hates ``Peppy Peanut Butter.'' The auditions aren't so great either; nervously, Max decides that his friend Austin Healy has won the part and tells Austin he'll be his manager. Friend Gordy helps out with photos of Austin, but then it turns out that he wasn't chosen. Undaunted, Max learns of an audition for toothpaste, assembles a ``Rezumay'' for Austin, and makes him practice. This time, Rosalie wins, and Max offers to be his sister's agent, too. Touching on children's innocent optimism and their common desire for a little fame, a funny, engaging story for newly independent readers. Illustrations not seen.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4-- Stardom doesn't come easily to anyone, as Max Malone, typical child dreamer, finds out when he decides to audition for a part in a peanut butter commercial. His sister Rosalie coaches him, but when the big day arrives, Max hates peanut butter, and decides managing future stars might be a better career. He gets his first client, his friend Austin, only to find that they are both upstaged by Rosalie. Lots of narrative, an agreeable plot, short paragraphs, and resourceful characters make this a satisfying story for beginning chapter-book readers. Full-page cartoon drawings, one per chapter, add to the appeal. --Pamela K. Bomboy, Chesterfield County Public Schools, VA
