Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rhythmic and lovely So pleased with this lovely book, perfect for a little princess or budding ballerina. Bought this for my girl last Christmas when she was 3 and it is still often requested at bed time. It's very rhythmic and flows well, which I appreciate in a bedtime story and it is just the right length for her attention span.

Editorial Reviews

“An infectiously rhyming text not a little reminiscent of Madeline….Author and illustrator have teamed up for a lovely story about friendship, ballet and grouping numbers. Davenier’s colorful illustrations are filled with humor, movement and lovely shades of pink…young readers, budding ballerinas or not, will enjoy the details of the ballet studio and the joie de vivre of the nine young ladies.”              --  Kirkus Reviews

"...the book is a charmer." -- Publishers Weekly
