The Right Way to Rock

Nat Amoore

Without music, the world is just blah. That’s my take on life, anyway.

Mum says rock is the only music worth listening to, but I think everyone should find their own beat.

When I hear that Principal Keiren plans to cut all of the arts classes at Watterson Primary, there’s no way me and my new mate Flynn are gonna let that happen. We’re dragging our secret Broadway appreciation society into the spotlight.

It’s time for Watterson - The Musical!


Have you ever wanted to be something other than what people expect of you? Mac certainly feels that way; his mum wants him to be a rock star, but his secret passion is actually musical theatre. When Mac finds out that his school is going to cut all its arts subjects at the end of the year, he decides he needs to reveal his passion to the world and use it to make a difference. With some new friends, a little bit of luck, and a whole lot of hard work, it’s up to Mac to save Watterson Primary from an Arts Fiasco!

The Right Way to Rock is an uplifting story all about the value of the arts and the power of community. Although Mac is just a kid, his enthusiasm inspires his whole town to fight for change. Fans of Nat Amoore will love the references to her earlier books, Secrets of a Schoolyard Millionaire and The Power of Positive Pranking, but anyone can enjoy Mac’s exciting journey to centre stage. For ages 8+.
