What's Ballerina Swan About

Publisher Summary

From her pond in the city park, sophie, a swan, loves to watch the dancers in Madam Myrtle’s Studio. She longs to join them, but Madam shoos her away. Then one day a much jollier teacher, Miss Willow, comes to class. Although Sopie is feathered, winged, and webbed, Miss Willow permits her to stay. When the school performs <i>Swan Lake</i>, the part of the swan seems perfect for Sophie–but she can only hope she’ll make the cast. <p/>Two great artists have created an inspiring character who, in spite of obstacles, pursues her passion and realizes her dream. <p/>
