Miss Lina's Ballerinas and the PrinceMiss Lina's Ballerinas
Grace Maccarone; Illustrated by Christine Davenier
Feiwel & Friends
Miss Lina's ballerinas have all learned how to dance as a group. But now Miss Lina has a new surprise for them – a boy will be joining their class and performing in their end-of-year show.
The girls have grand visions of dancing their first pas de deux with a prince. But when he finds himself surrounded by so much pink and so many girls, he turns quite shy, and dances his way out the door!
