Alone in front of a mirror a young dancer practices her ballet steps. As she dances, the girl imagines herself as a grown woman--costumed for and performing in such ballets as SWAN LAKE, THE SLEEPING BEAUTY, and THE NUTCRACKER. Watercolor illustrations accompany the text.
Author Bio
Peter Sis
Raised in Prague, Czechoslovakia, author and illustrator Peter Sis attended that city's Academy of Fine Arts from which he received both a B.A. and an M.A. He also attended the Royal College of Art in London. In addition to writing and illustrating his own books for children, Sis has also illustrated works by such other authors as Kate Banks, Sid Fleischman, and George Shannon. The illustrations for his 1997 picture-book biography of Galileo, STARRY MESSENGER, earned that book a Caldecott Honor Award. Peter Sis immigrated to the United States in 1982 and became a naturalized American citizen in 1988. His critically acclaimed autobiographical graphic picture book, THE WALL, was a 2008 Caldecott Honor Book.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"There aren't many books on ballet for younger preschoolers, so Terry's imaginative fantasy dance will find a place in the spotlight with the littlest budding ballerinas." 03/15/2001
