MIss Tutu's Star by Leslea Newman


MIss Tutu's Star by Leslea Newman

Selena is a young girl who would rather twirl than walk, prance than dance. So one day her mother takes her to Miss Tutu's dance class, where Selena learns how to dance. At first, Selena has trouble performing some of the intricate moves, but she keeps practicing. After some time, the big day comes for Selena to make her stage debut. Will she let stage fright get in the way? Or will she dance and bow in front of the audience? As is typical of her work, Carey adds little stories in the art that are very funny.
