Dancing the World's Best-loved Ballets
by Frank Augustyn and Shelley Tanaka
Reviewed September 16, 2001.
I don’t usually get excited about children’s nonfiction, but this
book is something special. Filled with beautiful photographs, it
tells the story of ballet--how it was developed, the stories of famous ballets,
and how it feels to be a dancer. The book is wonderfully crafted with
humorous anecdotes woven between serious aspects of the craft of ballet.
