From her pond in the city park, sophie, a swan, loves to watch the dancers in Madam Myrtle's Studio. She longs to join them, but Madam shoos her away. Then one day a much jollier teacher, Miss Willow, comes to class. Although Sopie is feathered, winged, and webbed, Miss Willow permits her to stay. When the school performs Swan Lake, the part of the swan seems perfect for Sophie-but she can only hope she'll make the cast. Two great artists have created an inspiring character who, in spite of obstacles, pursues her passion and realizes her dream.

But in Ballerina Swan, a new picture book written by the former New York City Ballet star Allegra Kent and illustrated by Emily Arnold McCully, the swan is the ugly duckling. Sophie sits in her city pond, gazing longingly through the windows of a dance studio. She wants nothing more than to become a ballerina.

by Allegra Kent & illustrated by Emily Arnold McCully. Kent was an acclaimed dancer with New York City Ballet, and in this, her first book for children, she captures the workings of a ballet class with both authority and tenderness. McCully, a Caldecott medalist, uses watercolors and pen-and-ink for delicate and detailed paintings. Sophie is imbued with a winning personality.

Suitable for 5 - 7 years. So, determined to do more than swan about, Sophie starts joining in. When you’re winged and webbed, dancing can be disastrous, but will her hours of practice give her the twinkle toes she needs? As she swaps swanning about the lake for sashaying around the dance floor, Sophie hopes it will be enough to win her dream role in the ballet class’ production of Swan Lake. A funny tale that’ll leave you flapping for more! Product Details.

Lovely story from a dancer I have always admired at the American Ballet Theater. The story is heartwarming and the illustrations are done very well. I recommend it for little girls who love ballet and/or a great introduction to Swan Lake.

What a lovely book. My 2 1/2 year old had me read it many, many times!
Beardana
Very cute for young dancers. Also teaches ballet vocabulary.A great book for a group story time before or after ballet class.

This story is utterly original and timeless. It has a combination of reality and fantasy that is irresistible. Sophie the swan is beautiful and graceful as she swims around the pond in the park. But something is missing. When she glimpses a ballet class, she realizes she can do more with her graceful body than just swim around her pond. She wants to dance! She learns that she must study and practice. Sophie's desire to learn -- her hope and happiness as she progresses -- is captured in McCully's delightful paintings with uncanny subtlety. The story and paintings convey the pure joy of dance in a way that is timeless and deeply moving.

While the story sounded charming and had lovely illustrations, the story didn't quite come across as believable, even to the four-year-old to whom I read it. The story's well put together, but it lacks the zing that I thought a real ballerina would bring to it.

nice illustrations, no depth of meaning - hoping for originality and personal truth (maybe about discipline and love of music & how to deal with competition with other dancers & dance itself versus goal of performance - the recital -) but no. big hype review in New Yorker made me want to buy it for two great-nieces. As former dancer who grew up with child classics (Kleinsinger: Celeste, Tube The Tuba, Peter & The Wolf) was looking for way more from a prima ballerina author.

I anticipated charm measured against a background of hard work at ballet class. To me, the presentation seemed clumsy. No sense of pace, just a ruthless execution of a promising outline. The presentation was disjointed and the ending unconnected. A disappointment. And unnaturally short. I was sorry for it.
All three of my grandchildren in one family take ballet lessons. Their ages are 4,6 and 8. I gave this book to one of them as a birthday gift and the oldest one's eyes lit up as she exclaimed,' I love this story'. I had no idea she was familiar with it, but was happy that I bought it. I think it's charming.
