Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Cheryl Peterson
Any child who dreams of becoming a graceful ballet dancer will find a wealth of information here as well as a useful starting point. Information about life at a ballet school and the history of ballet is presented accompanied by stunning photographs. Each of the basic dance positions is demonstrated step by step with clear photos and diagrams. Backstage preparations also are described and photographed, including how sets are created, how costumes are designed, and how makeup is applied. The music composers and choreographers are described with highlights of the most famous in the ballet world. This book is a fascinating resource for ballet lovers of all ages.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6--Young balletomanes will pore over every detail of this colorful volume. Every highly visual two-page spread covers a different topic from basic positions to dressing for dance to life at ballet school to historical periods in ballet. However, the organization is not chronological. The book succeeds more as a browsing item than as a "how-to" or research tool because it tries to cover an enormous amount of material in a limited space. As in Darcey Bussell's The Young Dancer (DK, 1994), this book is copiously illustrated with photographs reflecting all manner of details about the art form. While most of the photos are excellent, some of the older pictures of classic moments in ballet are quite grainy and the dancers are not always identified. A list of ballet companies to contact is appended. Libraries owning Castle's nearly identical Ballet (Kingfisher, 1996) may not need to purchase this one. Although it is not as emotionally satisfying as Jill Krementz's A Very Young Dancer (Knopf, 1976; o.p.), it will be popular without a doubt.--Cheri Estes, Detroit Country Day School Middle School, Beverly Hills, MI
