“Quick and witty pacing will keep readers on their toes.” PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

Originally published in France, this enjoyable, lighthearted series stars three energetic wannabe ballerinas: blond Julie, Alia with dark hair and skin, and rounder redhead Lucie. The three friends take dance classes, go to school, flirt with boys in dance class and at school, and deal with individual problems—like Lucie’s divorced parents who compete to be “best” at whatever they do for her. This volume introduces the dancers to an ethnic dance style with new instructor Fatou, backed up by dreadlocked drummer Sam. The format, a collection of one and two-page mini-stories with punch-lines at the end, makes for starting anywhere reading. The kids display a variety of styles and body types.
