"In this attractive book, ten of the world's best-known ballets, including The Sleeping Beauty, The Nutcracker, Romeo and Juliet, and Cinderella, are introduced to young readers. The essence of a ballet production is successfully captured by the full-color illustrations, which exuberantly portray each story's setting, and the writing style, which maintains the original flavor of both the tales and ballets. Children who love to attend ballets, take ballet lessons, or like to read fairy tales will delight in this treasury."--Booklist There is no more elegant or comprehensive introduction to the ballet than this enchanting book.
