Publisher Comments:

Then one sunny day, a guest came to view

Miss Linas ten dancers plié and tendu.

Miss Lina announced, “This is Mister Brisé.

Hell watch you take class,” she explained, “and he may

invite you to dance with the City Ballet.”

Miss Linas ten ballerinas—Christina, Edwina, Sabrina, Justina, Katrina, Bettina, Marina, Regina, Nina, and Tony Farina—are thrilled by the chance to be in the City Ballets production of Sleeping Beauty. But when nervous Regina is given the undesirable part of the rat while all the other girls gets to dance the waltz, she starts turning green with envy. If only someone would get sick, she wishes, then she would get to dance the waltz, as well!

Review:

"In the third story to feature Miss Lina and her ballet students, a dapper visitor to the class offers a big opportunity for the children to star in a production of Sleeping Beauty — eight as ballerinas, and two as rats. Unhappily assigned to be a rat, Regina is plagued by nightmares of rodents, and wishes for a ballerina to get sick so that she can take her place. An even worse nightmare awaits Regina in class, though, as one student after another suffers illness and injury. Davenier's fluid brushstrokes are still a lovely match for Maccarone's alliterative verse. It's an empathic and gently humorous story about a challenging emotion, delivered with a hint of Bemelmans's Madeline stories — and of magic. Ages 4 — up." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Synopsis:

Itandrsquo;s summer, and Tallulah is excited about going to dance camp. Sheandrsquo;ll get to take plenty of ballet classes. Sheandrsquo;ll have to take tap, too, and sheandrsquo;s NOT excited about that. Sheandrsquo;s never taken tap before, so sheandrsquo;ll be a beginning beginner. And sheandrsquo;s rightandmdash;tap class is not much fun. Plus thereandrsquo;s a girl her same age whoandrsquo;s maddeningly good at tap dancing. But that same girl isnandrsquo;t very good at ballet . . . could it be that she and Tallulah have something in common?
