Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Ormerod's ( 101 Things to Do with a Baby ) mastery of the art of simplicity is affirmed in this pleasingly unpretentious counting book. Accompanying French's spare text are alternating pictures of a sophisticated young ballerina in a neat black leotard and of a frisky, younger ballerina wearing wrinkled clothing and untied dancing shoes. ``Ten plies'' performed flawlessly by the former are followed by ``nine knee bends'' shakily executed by the latter. Eight graceful changements inspire ``seven little jumps,'' and so on until the countdown culminates in ``one happy hug,'' as the older dancer holds the younger tenderly in her arms. Accentuating the contrast between the two ballet styles is the fact that a traditional typeface describes the accomplished dancer's steps, whereas a child's scrawl identifies the diminutive dancer's moves. This is an amiable pas de deux that very young aspiring ballerinas will applaud. Ages 3-up. (Oct.)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3 --Two dancers--an eight- or nine-year-old student of ballet and her adorable preschool counterpart--perform a countdown in this deceptively simple presentation. The first double-page spread features the groomed and polished young ballerina, outfitted in a black leotard and toe shoes, in the various stages of executing ten plies. She is followed by a disheveled but determined blond cutie in a pink sweater and drooping leg warmers engaging in nine knee bends. Changements, pas de chats, and pirouttes are intermingled with jumps, gallops, and pony trots. The satisfying finale consists of two curtsies and the dancers sharing one happy hug. While not an introduction to the ballet per se, Ormerod's delicate pen-and-ink drawings with subtle watercolor accents are understated, finely detailed, and precise in depicting proper positions and postures. The exuberant imp provides comic relief and more than makes up in enthusiasm what she lacks in finesse. This author/illustrator team fortunately excels in both.--Luann Toth, School Library Journal
