Book Description

'Never forget, Charlotte, you were born to be a dancer . . . Never forget. Promise.'



Before her ballet teacher died, Lottie promised Madame Holbein to be the dancer her mother never lived to become. Orphaned at birth, Lottie has been brought up by her aunt, and though she is loved, she is lonely. Then she finds Prince, a spaniel puppy, and discovers a love and loyalty that is boundless.



When Lottie passes the tough audition for Queen's Chase, Her Majesty's Junior Ballet School, everybody is thrilled - except, surprisingly, Lottie. She will have to board at school, and what will happen to her beloved dog? To choose between the two is breaking her heart.

This is the story of a young girl who has just lost her ballet teacher and who enters a ballet school. It is the story of her struggle to fit in and to find a place for herself. It is told with the usual sensitivity and charm of all the Rumer Godden books and it will touch your heart! An excellent read, esp. for those with an interest in the ballet world.

4.0 out of 5 stars really enjoyed this as a child 6 Jun. 2015
Format:Paperback
As a child I loved ballet. About as likely to become a prima ballerina as a space alien but I still loved reading about it and going to my classes. So it isn't surprising I came across this book. Very charming and delightful story of a young dancer starting ballet school and facing up to the fact that achieving her life`s dream will mean giving up her little dog. What will she do?
