Editorial Reviews

"The artwork swirls about in bright blues, pinks, and purples while the page layout and Belinda's odd but beautifully positioned and danced jetes, reverences, and arabesques deserve bravas and applause. . . A fine picture-book performance." --School Library Journal"For every young dancer who finds that her body is not perfect (that is, almost every young dancer), the story puts physical defects into perspective and offers something to laugh about at the same time." --Booklist
