The second book in a fun new series about two sisters who love ballet!
Sylvie and Bonnie are sisters who love to dance, but Sylvie is too young for ballet school. One day, Sylvie follows Bonnie to class and can't help peeping her head in! Miss Trisha sees her. "Can you point your toes?" she asks.
With her sister's encouragement, Sylvie steps into the spotlight and proves herself a dedicated ballerina ready for lessons. Sylvie earns a spot in Miss Amy's ballet class, and Bonnie congratulates her with a present--her own leotard and tights!
Acclaimed author and illustrator Jan Ormerod pairs simple text with charming illustrations for a fun easy-to-read story.
