Description

Oh, to be a ballerina! It's a challenge for any little girl, but even more so if you happen to be a vampire like Vampirina. First of all, you have to find a class that meets at night. Then you have to figure out how to perfect your form when you can't see yourself in the mirror? And then there's wearing pink (not the most flattering of colors if you happen to be undead) and that nagging urge to take a little nip out of the other dancers. And worse of all? STAGE FRIGHT!!!

Review quote

In this humorous how-to guide for wannabe ballerinas, an all-in-black vampire girl attends dance class amidst a sea of pink leotards. Sure, this gal is different-none of her classmates can spontaneously transform into a bat, for instance-but she is learning technique and practicing, just like everybody else. Pace's funny, matter-of-fact advice ("always get a good day's sleep") works in harmony with Pham's expressive watercolor pen-and-ink artwork, which depicts the adorable minivampire leaping and pli ing enthusiastically across the pages. Kids who aren't into frilly will welcome this departure from typical ballerina books. - Ann Kelley Booklist"
