Synopsis

Little Ballerina A Children's Book Inspired by Edgar Degas by Helene Kerillis

Laura, a young dancer, is transported to nineteenth-century Paris, where she gets to perform on stage with Degas' famous ballerinas. Told in a charmingly accessible style, Laura's adventure is illustrated with brightly coloured images that recall Degas' works and which immerse readers into the world of dance. The story concludes with Degas' own painting, and an introduction of this classic work to young readers. An appealing book to any child interested in dance, this story of a young ballerina is a wonderful tale for young dancers everywhere.
