Little Ballerina: A Children's Book Inspired by Edgar Degas

Edgar Degas' masterpiece, The Rehearsal of the Ballet on Stage, is delightfully re-imagined as a children's story in this vibrant picture book.

Laura, a young dancer, is transported to 19th century Paris, where she performs on stage with Degas' famous ballerinas. Told in a charmingly accessible style, Laura's adventure is illustrated with brightly colored images that recall Degas' works and that immerse readers into the world of dance.

The story concludes with Degas' own painting, and an introduction of this classic work to young readers. An appealing book to any child interested in dance, this story of a young ballerina is a wonderful tale for young dancers everywhere.

Author — Hélène Kérillis and Lucie Albon.
