The first book in a fun new series about two sisters who love ballet!
Little Sylvie likes to play dress-up and dance in the garden with her big sister. But Sylvie is too young for ballet class. And Sylvie does NOT want to be an elf in games of pretend.
When an unintentional haircut leaves Sylvie's hair too short for braids, big sister comes to the rescue by creating a set of braids from an old pair of tights!
New readers will delight in the funny antics of little Sylvie and in the patience of her big sister!
