Marie was just a "rat" in the chorus of the Paris Opera before Edgar Degas asked her to model for him. But while Degas created a world-famous sculpture, Marie learned to soar like a butterfly.
"Both imaginative and realistic...[this book] brings the artist's studio and era to life." --Kirkus Reviews
"Illustrated with oil paintings strikingly reminiscent of those done by Degas himself, this book is a true testament to the joys and the hard work involved in the creative process." --School Library Journal, starred review
"The story gives depth to our understanding of Edgar Degas and of the ballet world of the Paris Opera....As readers follow the story of Degas' difficulties--what to do with his sketches, how to present the statue--the labor of creating art becomes more vivid." --The Chicago Tribune
