One Ballerina Two by Vivian French
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Two young ballerinas, one small and one not-so-small, practise their steps and movements - from ten plies to one final hug in this delightful study of sibling affection. The younger sister's adoring, scruffy and clumsy attempts to imitate her older sister's trained, more fluid movements will bring a smile to any reader's face, and reflect the frustrations of younger readers who perhaps have similar experiences themselves!
