Ballet Bunnies: The New Class: Oxford University Press

Oxford University Press

NY Published: September

This is a rather charming small first chapter book. Many, many years ago my Mum arranged for me to have a ballet lesson – I am almost certain,  and I hope, it wasn’t in the belief that I would continue it beyond the first. I just remember going that one time. I don’t even remember what we did. I recollect the building and not much more.

This is the story of Betty, and her first ever ballet class. It doesn’t go quite as she dreamed in more ways than one. Perhaps if I had met a number of talking ballet dancing rabbits I would have continued…

This is filled with a considerable number of pictures, as you might expect from a first chapter book – they beautifully reflect the sentiment and the story.
