Ballet Star A Little Girl with a Big Dream by Nicola Baxter

A little girl with a big dream...When Star's granny takes her to watch the ballet she decides she wants to be just like the floating girls on stage.

This delightful story, told in simple language and beautifully illustrated throughout with colourful drawings, makes a lovely first storybook for young readers. Produced on special shiny pages, a glittery finish on the cover makes this volume a pleasure to read. Children will delight in Star's story as she find out about what ballerinas wear, what she can learn in dance lessons, and how her granny can help her along the way. With charming illustrations throughout, the sparkly, glittery cover enhances a book that is sure to capture every young reader's imagination.
