    A lovely little book of Ballet stories. It's a collection of about seven of the more famous Ballets and their version of popular fairy tales. Which was interesting. Technically I've only seen the Nutcracker ballet. But I'm familiar with all most of the stories featured in this book, and three were brand new to me. After reading these I'm interested in actually maybe seeing these ballets performed. Especially the Korean one, Shim Chung. Also I enjoyed the introductions to each story, the history [...]

    Wonderful book with so many ballet stories! The words are beautiful and they captured the spirit of ballet stories well with vivid pictures. My daughter has returned to the book regularly.

    If you have a ballerina in your house, this is worth checking out! Even if you don't, this book is a terrific introduction to some of the classical ballets in story form. Introductory notes, nice illustrations, and wonderfully written stories will make this a fun read for ballet devotees. Reading level is upper elementary; stories are fairly long/few pictures, making this a better read aloud to K+ than preschool.

    Even thought this is a children's book, I couldn't resist the gorgeous artwork (that earns it at the very least two stars) by Rebecca Guay. The stories are a good, simple introduction to the tales of several popular ballets, but, honestly, I got it for the art alone. Recommended for any Guay fans, or young girls who love the ballet.

    I knew going in that the combination of Jane Yolen and Rebecca Guay was going to be marvelous, but you can really see their love for, and experience with, ballet in every page. Each story is prefaced with a story about the ballet, and Guay's illustrations capture beautiful moments in each ballet.Well worth it for anyone who has ever loved ballet.

    Who doesn't love Jane Yolen? These are the classic fairy tales retold in a ballet style- beautiful art and story, as always! Find this and other Barefoot Books on my website.

    The Illistations are wonderful, and the writer does a great job of summing up the plot lines of some of the most loved ballets
