Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Angelina loves to dance and she and her friend Alice attend ballet school. They have a big recital coming up and have been practicing very hard. In this ballet they are flower princesses and her cousin Henry is going to be the dragon. The costumes are lovely and the two girls just love practicing. The day of the performance Angelina is so excited that she gets a bad case of hiccups. Yipes, what is this budding ballerina going to do. Everyone offers their favorite remedy for getting rid of the hiccups—holding her breath, eating a spoonful of sugar, blowing into a paper bag—but nothing works. The final solution is provided by her friends Henry and Alice and the ballet performance is a roaring success. The illustrations are delightful and fans of the other Angelina stories will enjoy this one as well.
