Emma loves lizards and pirates and cowboy boots, so when a package arrives from Uncle Leo, she doesn't know what to do with the ballerina costume inside. 'I don't know how to be a ballerina,' Emma says. She flops when she should float, she trips when she should twirl, and her music sounds like burping! But when she decides to make her own rules about how to be a ballerina, Emma's style prevails in her triumphant dance debut.

Rolking romp when a tomboy receives a ballerina outfit as a present. A bit of a tongue and cheek look at society's expectations and delightful individuality. Emma's magnetic personality and the charming illustrations make it a book worth reading again and again.
