Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In this latest addition to the Angelina series (Angelina Ballerina, etc.), Angelina is invited to perform as a magic fairy in a real grown-ups' ballet. She's delighted, but less so when her goofy younger cousin Henry is asked to perform in the ballet, too. While Angelina practices flying through the air on a wire, Henry stumbles around the stage, missing cues but nevertheless endearing himself to the cast. Though she's jealous of Henry, Angelina comes through for him on the night of the performance. The book gently reflects an older child's ambivalent feelings. But it is also a delightful story, whose delicately rendered, sweet illustrations invite the reader into the magical world of ballet. (4-7)
Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
Angelina's tiny cousin Henry loves to go to her ballet class. He isn't much of a dancer, but he tries hard, and he's cute. Angelina gets a big break-she will play a magic fairy in the grown-ups' ballet. Her excitement is a bit dampened by the decision to let Henry play an elf, with a speaking part! Angelina's jealousy evaporates when Henry gets stage fright. She comes up with the perfect solution, and everyone is happy. The characters are delightfully expressive mice, with tails sticking up behind their tutus. A fun story for anyone who adores ballet, or who has endured a tag-along younger relative. 1991 (orig.
The whimsical "Angelina Ballerina" books take readers backstage to a dramatic world of performances and rehearsals. In this story, her cousin Henry is getting all the attention—and a speaking line! Angelina succeeds in fighting jealously and helping him; she's rewarded for it in the end! 2001, Pleasant Company, $9.95. Ages 3 to 8. Reviewer: A. Braga SOURCE: Parent Council Volume 8
