Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The heroine of Angelina Ballerina , it turns out, is as deft an entertainer twirling on ice as she is performing an onstage pas de deux. Here the spunky, diminutive mouse organizes a New Year's Eve figure skating show. With characteristic aplomb she overcomes a number of obstacles, including two pesky young hockey players who repeatedly interrupt her rehearsals. A confrontation between these ``big boys'' and Angelina erupts into a pond-wide snowball fight, vividly portrayed by Craig in a motion-filled, double-page illustration. This spectacle--as well as captivating depictions of both indoor scenes and the ice extravaganza--more than justifies the artist's top billing on the book's cover. But Holabird's narrative percolates steadily, and words and pictures culminate in a jubilant final scenario replete with well-deserved fireworks. Ages 3-7. (Nov.)
Children's Literature - Children's Literature
In this charming picture book, a young mouse named Angelina Mouseling wants to dance more than anything else in the world. She dances everywhere--at home, at school, even in her dreams. She's so wrapped up in her dancing that she forgets to listen closely, tidy up her room, get ready for school and watch where she's going. Not knowing how to handle the situation, Angelina's parents put their heads together and devise a clever plan. They purchase a pink ballet dress and slippers and enroll their young dancer in Miss Lilly's Ballet School. This decision turns out to be an excellent one. Angelina practices her twirls, curtsies and plies during ballet lessons and no longer feels the need to dance all over the place. After her first day of classes, she declares "I'm the happiest little girl in the world today" and soon becomes a better listener and helper. Helen Craig's whimsical illustrations perfectly capture the spirit of Katharine Holabird's wonderful story. Readers of all ages will enjoy this delightful tale. It's a pure winner! 2000, Pleasant Company Publications, Ages 4 to 8, $9.95. Reviewer: Debra Briatico—Children's Literature
From The Critics

This sweet, well-illustrated story is a book that little girls will want to read again and again! A perfect gift for any young ballerina. 2000, Pleasant Company, $9.95. Ages 3 to 8. Reviewer: A.

    I am a teenager who still loves this series. I haven't been able to find this set of books anywhere for the past few years. I babysit a lot and most of the little girls that i read them to enjoy the books as much as me.

    Excellent Book!

    I bought this book and Angelina and the Princess for a friend's daughter's 4th birthday and she absolutely loves it! They read them every night before bed. These books are beautifully illustrated. I will be buying more of these books for other little girls as well. Might even buy a set for myself, they are really beautiful.

    For your little ballerina

    A great book for all the little ballerinas in your life. It tells the story of a little mouse who just wants to dance but has to learn that there is a time and a place for dancing and that with hard work you can make your dreams come true. My girls love this book.
