Angelina Ballerina (Angelina Ballerina)by Katharine Holabird
Synopses & Reviews
Angelina Ballerina is the picture book that first introduced Angelina to her adoring fans. This tiny dancer has proved to have enormous staying power—she has been a hugely popular character for more than twenty years. And Angelinas popularity only continues to grow. She is even the spokescharacter for National Dance Week. With Katharine Holabirds lively writing and Helen Craigs charming illustrations, the original story about the feisty little mouse who wants nothing more than to dance still keeps young ballerinas leaping with delight. Now, for the first time in the United States, the original, abridged story will be available in a board book edition, perfect for even the youngest readers.
Angelina is busy preparing for the Ice Dance with her friends Alice, Flora, and Felicity. Cousin Henry tries to help too, but nothing goes right. And the rehearsals are disrupted when two big boys from school tease the ballerinas. More than a few snowballs fly before Angelina finds a way to ensure the success of the show.
Angelina and her cousin Henry are off on a camping adventure in the Big Cat Mountains with Uncle Louie. They love being explorers and are excited to hike deeper and deeper into the forest. But then night falls and ahh!...is that Big Cat behind the trees? Luckily, Angelina is brave enough to calm Henry's fears and her own.
