Book Synopsis



Ease the wind-down to sleep with this graceful, playful rhyme that will have children gliding into bed!

When the sun sets, the ballet can begin! From the first notes of the crickets' outdoor orchestra to her grand finale indoors, one little girl glissés and jetés her way to bedtime. Rhyming verse, fun sound effects and elegant French words add delicious read-aloud flair to this delightful, dance-filled tale.



Review Quotes




"Softly colored textured washes combine with thick linework to create a cozy atmosphere. Fantastical performing animals add a touch of whimsy."--Kirkus Reviews

"This sweet bedtime story is told in hushed and swooping rhyming couplets and illustrated in mixed-media with gentle watercolor washes in dreamy and subdued hues that will bring drooping eyelids with the closing rose-covered curtain."--Booklist

"Viewers...will understand the little girl's passion for ballet even if they don't share it themselves, and if pronunciations of ballet terms can't be inferred from rhymes, a glossary at the end provides these with descriptions."--BCCB
