WITH A TAP-TAP HERE, AND A TAP-TAP THERE
Youngsters will almost 'hear the beat of those dancing feet' when they read this improbable but funny story about the most determined-to-dance girl the population of Fiddler's Creek has ever seen. Annabelle Applegate is not only set on dancing but she taps those toes every waking hour of the day. She danced so much that she wore out the linoleum in her mother's kitchen, and she even danced a hole through the schoolhouse floor. Now, it wouldn't have caused such a furor if the Tap-Dance Fever that had control of Annabelle just affected her but it took its toll on others, too. The ridge she danced in the road caused a tire to blow, and some chickens refuse to lay eggs. Obviously, this is a crisis. So, an emergency meeting is called to try to figure out how to stop this twinkle-toed young miss. Citizens come up with several ideas - none of which are effective. Why, when they take away her tap shoes, she dances in boots. When they take away her boots, she tapes pennies to the bottoms of her feet. What to do? That's the surprise for both Annabelle and young readers. - Gail Cooke

Great Picture Book!
This was a very cute story. I really love the illustrations - especially how Anabelle’s dresses are drawn! The story has a funny and happy ending to it. Kids will hopefully learn from Annabelle. She’s always happy and doing what she likes best no matter what the problem. That’s being a good role model. I recommend this book to kids 5+!Was this review helpful?

NOTE- I purchased this book at an arts festival the author was at.
