The Lovereading4Kids comment

A warm-hearted story full of hopes and dreams told by Casey who loves to dance. Casey’s passion leaps off the page as with a combination of hard work and talent she pursues her dream to dance in New York. Casey’s enthusiasm for dancing is infectious and the story of how she gets what she wants is delightfully entertaining.


Dreamer Ballerina by Sarah Rubin

Looking at her ratty-tatty, used-to-be-white, too-big high-top trainers, and then at her skinny chicken legs poking up from the ground, you’d never think that Casey Quinn could ever be a ballerina.

But just because Casey can’t do ballet in high-tops doesn’t mean she can’t dance. She has more grace in her little toe than the local pinky-pink, richer girls put together. Casey has a dream to dance in New York - and no-one is going to stop her.

Sarah Rubin's Dreamer Ballerina is a feel-good ballet story to rival Billy Elliot – and in the spirit of Noel Streatfeild’s Ballet Shoes.
