From her pond in the city park, sophie, a swan, loves to watch the dancers in Madam Myrtle's Studio. She longs to join them, but Madam shoos her away. Then one day a much jollier teacher, Miss Willow, comes to class. Although Sopie is feathered, winged, and webbed, Miss Willow permits her to stay. When the school performs Swan Lake, the part of the swan seems perfect for Sophie--but she can only hope she'll make the cast.

Two great artists have created an inspiring character who, in spite of obstacles, pursues her passion and realizes her dream.

Emily Arnold McCully draws upon her passion for ballet to create exquisite paintings for this enchanting story. Allegra Kent, one of the New York City Ballet's most celebrated ballerinas, danced many roles created for her by George Balanchine, as well as the role of Odette in Swan Lake, She lives in New York City.
