Succeeding Miley in teen queen fame, Miranda Cosgrove has her own story to tell.
This guide takes readers through Miranda Cosgrove’s early career: her major film experience (in 2003’s School of Rock), her inspiring music career (with four hit singles by the time she was 16), and a major role on Drake & Josh. These demonstrations of her young talent granted her every young star’s wish — a new TV show tailor-made to showcase her talent. Created by Nickelodeon’s visionary producer Dan Schneider, iCarly is a zany sitcom about three friends who start their own webcast, where they perform skits and stunts, and showcase their viewers’ wild and wacky talents. Schneider called his creation a show where “kids win,” and appropriately, iCarly won the ratings race while it was on the air, drawing nearly 8 million viewers per episode as the number one scripted show for kids and tweens. But fans weren’t just watching. Kids submitted over 100,000 of their own videos to iCarly.com to be featured on the website and even on the show itself.
The first book to focus on Nickelodeon’s crown jewel, The Miranda Cosgrove and iCarly Spectacular! also includes:
Voted best TV show in 2009 at the Kids’ Choice Awards, fans still can’t get enough of iCarly. The Miranda Cosgrove and iCarly Spectacular! is the essential full-colour guide to this unstoppable Emmy-nominated TV sensation and the girl at the heart of the show.

“Decidedly readable bios on the show's stars . . . are complemented with ample behind-the-scene photos. Almost as exciting is the comprehensive guide to the first 45 episodes, replete with trivia and little-known factoids. In this tech-savvy age, the iCarly fans among us will appreciate an accessible and good old-fashioned book they can refer to again and again. The book is just as remarkable as the show's preternatural ability to render kids silent and immobile in front of the television for the entire time it's on.” — Scene Magazine
