Description

Dancers are young when they first dream of dance. Siena was six -- and her dreams kept skipping and leaping, circling and spinning, from airy runs along a beach near her home in Puerto Rico, to dance class in Boston, to her debut performance on stage with the New York City Ballet.

Twirl along with Siena as she shares her story in words with pictures by acclaimed illustrator Mark Siegel.




About the Author
Mark Siegel was inspired by Cynthia Rylant's melodious homage to moonlit nights to take many long walks with only the full moon as his guide. The wonderfully atmospheric illustrations in "Long Night Moon" reflect many of the things he discovered on those nocturnal hikes. An up-and-coming visual artist and an aspiring author, Mark spends his days designing books for children. His first book, Lisa Wheeler's "Seadogs, " was published earlier this year. He lives with his wife, Siena, in New York.

Mark Siegel is the illustrator of "To Dance: A Ballerina's Graphic Novel", a Robert F. Sibert Award Honor Book, as well as the author and illustrator of the picture book "Moving House, " published by Roaring Brook Press. "Sailor Twain" is his most recent graphic novel.
