Synopsis

At Madame Amata's School of Ballet, it is the day of the Grand Gala - but an unfortunate accident means that the show might not go on...This delightful story is told using simple vocabulary and familiar language that youngsters can easily follow. Exquisite illustrations sparkle on every page, making this heart-warming tale even more magical. You can admire the glittering costumes, the sparkly set dressing, and the dancers - the shining stars of tomorrow. It is ideal for sharing with little ones aged 2 to 7. Within the ballet school run by Madame Amata, little girls and boys in sparkly costumes are scampering around, looking for lost ribbons, pestering the ladies who help with their hair, and getting lost just when they are needed. It is the evening of a major performance, in which Madame Amata herself is to dance the leading role - in a costume more glittery and more gorgeous than any of the others. The little ones have been rehearsing for months. They are excited, nervous, and quite impossible to control! However, a few minutes before the Grand Gala is due to start, Madame Amata has a fall, injuring her ankle. In no time at all, the news has spread throughout the auditorium.

Surely the show cannot go ahead now! But sitting in the audience is someone who might just be able to help...Shiny details on every page of this beautiful boardbook bring this touching story to life, as the young dancers discover that there is always hope, that the show will go on, and that thanks to their love of ballet the dance will never end.
