Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kasey Giard
During a visit from her fun-loving Uncle Garrett, Olivia's mother takes her to see a ballet performance. Inspired, Olivia imagines what it would be like to be a ballerina. When her mother agrees to let her take lessons, Olivia cannot wait to begin. But ballet class is not exactly what Olivia expected. Where is her dance partner who will lift her gracefully into the air? Olivia tries to convince her brother Ian to be her partner. When he refuses, she turns her charms on her friend Julian. After just one class, Julian is too sore to dance again. Olivia needs a partner for show-and-tell at school, but who can help? At last she secures Uncle Garrett's help and after a little practice, the two perform for Olivia's class. Imaginative and charming as ever, Olivia is sure to win smiles from children and adults alike. Though this story lacks the humor and complexity of creator Ian Falconer, the brightly colored illustrations are filled with characters familiar to followers of the series. Reviewer: Kasey Giard
