This is the next brilliant adventure in the hugely successful series. Katie Morag has to go to ballet class. She has to wear a frilly frou-frou skirt and pink ballet pumps, instead of her favourite wellies. Katie Morag is not impressed - she has better things to do on a Saturday morning. But the Grandmothers have decided - she must go to ballet. There's nothing she can do or is there? The perfect story for feisty little girls everywhere - especially the ones who don't like ballet.
Mairi Hedderwick was born in Gourock, Scotland. At seventeen she took a job as a mother's help on the Isle of Coll in the Hebrides, beginning a life-long love affair with islands and their small communities. Her children were brought up there and now some of her grandchildren. Mairi's island world is delightfully reflected in the imaginary island of Struay where Katie Morag and her family live. As well as creating children's books Mairi writes and illustrates travel books for adults. She spends a lot of time visiting schools and is always accompanied by Katie Morag's teddy, which travels with her in a black bag.
