Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
For youngsters eager for more about gifted dancers (or a well-written biography), have on hand: Charnan Simon's Evelyn Cisneros.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Simon ably relates the fascinating story of Mexican-American Evelyn Cisneros and her rise to stardom as a principal dancer with the San Francisco Ballet. This photographic essay shows Cisneros both in practice and performance. Her stunning performances have earned her many awards. Emphasis is also placed on her efforts to inspire young children through talks at schools.
