What they say: Can you spot the graceful ballerina as she pirouettes across ten beautiful ballets? This beautiful new book introduces young children to the magical world of ballet. Kids are asked to spot key characters from ten classic ballets, including Swan Lake, Cinderella, and Coppelia. First they read a snappy synopsis of the story and then a simple, illustrated narrative takes them through key scenes and introduces them to the main characters. Next they explore the wonderfully detailed illustrations as they search for the elusive ballerina and key characters in each busy scene.
The character-spotting element is an innovative way to capture ballets’ timeless appeal, and the wonderfully detailed artwork brings each ballet to life.
What we say: “A beautiful, classic book that will capture the heart of any would-be ballerina. Where’s The Ballerina? by Anna Claybourne is a wonderful introduction to classic ballets including Swan Lake, The Nutcracker,and many others…
Fact about the ballet, a short story and then time to find the ballerina on each page – a perfect picture book to dip in and out of, at any age.”
Where’s The Ballerina? is released on 2 February 2017 and is available to pre-order from Amazon.
