By Samanta Moster Sampaio 16 Aug 2011 5

This book is almost an illustrated dictionary: full of pictures, it shows the basics of ballet and carries the information any ballet lover should get to know when starting with this graceful art form. It should please children because of its simple, clear language and tons of pretty images, as well as adults in love with the theme.
