Then one sunny day, a guest came to view

Miss Lina’s ten dancers plié and tendu.

Miss Lina announced, “This is Mister Brisé.

He’ll watch you take class,” she explained, “and he may

invite you to dance with the City Ballet.”


Miss Lina’s ten ballerinas—Christina, Edwina, Sabrina, Justina, Katrina, Bettina, Marina, Regina, Nina, and Tony Farina—are thrilled by the chance to be in the City Ballet’s production of Sleeping Beauty. But when nervous Regina is given the undesirable part of the rat while all the other girls gets to dance the waltz, she starts turning green with envy. If only someone would get sick, she wishes, then she would get to dance the waltz, as well!

Praise for Miss Lina's Ballerinas and the Wicked Wish

"Applause for another lovely production from the author-and-illustrator duo.”--Kirkus

"Davenier’s fluid brushstrokes are still a lovely match for Maccarone’s alliterative verse. It’s an empathic and gently humorous story about a challenging emotion, delivered with a hint of Bemelmans’s Madeline stories—and of magic."--Publishers Weekly
