5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic book for little girls. 11 Nov 2001
Format:Hardcover
I bought this book for my 4 year old daughter, who attends ballet classes. She loves this book, and also enjoys watching the programme on television. The book shows children that no matter what size you are you can dance just like Angelina. Since starting school, in September, she now attempts to read some of the book herself.
A fantastic book with lovely illustrations.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must for little ballet fans! 15 Jan 2009
Format:Paperback
My 3 year-old daughter has just started ballet and what better tale to accompany this new experience but this wonderful picture book which is 25 years-old this year!
Angelina is a little mouse who loves to dance. She dances at home, at school and even in her dreams! Unfortunately, all this dancing gets in the way of all the other things she should be doing, like tidying up, doing her homework and being helpful at home. Angelina's parents decide it is time for her to start ballet and send her to Mademoiselle Lily's lessons. Angelina turns out to be a gifted dancer and becomes a very happy mouse and eventually a great ballerina.

What I particularly like about this story is the positive message it send about children (or mice!) being happier if they take part in some kind of physical activity. What my daughter particularly likes about it is that it is all about ballet, and that Angelina wears a pink tutu! So everybody is happy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for all young ballerinas 3 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I read this book to my daugther when she was three. A realistic story of the ups and downs of wanting to dance portrayed by a beautiful young mouse called Angelina. My daughter (13) is now in full time dance education, living her dream which was inspired by the never to be forgotten Angelina Ballerina!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great story let down by technology 21 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nothing wrong with the illustration or story, but reading with Kindle means one has to enlarge each page, bit troublesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!
Beautifully read, and with none of the irritating padding that some audio books have. It's a firm favourite with my 6 year old, and will take plenty of repeat listening. Read more
