9780060573560: Starring Prima!: The Mouse of the Ballet Jolie

From the day she was born in the piano backstage at the Ballet Jolie, it was obvious that Prima was destined for greatness.

Her family fully expected her to become the lead dancer with the American Ballet Rodente. Such an honor should be enough for any mouselet, but Prima had even bigger plans. She wouldn't be satisfied until she could share her talent with all creatures -- even humans. But as any mouse with half a brain knows, the last thing you want to do around a human is draw attention to yourself. Did that stop Prima? Not on your tutu!

About the Author:

Jacquelyn Mitchard is the New York Times best-selling author of Twelve Times Blessed, A Theory of Relativity, The Deep End of the Ocean, and The Most Wanted. Jackie is widely acclaimed for her literary achievements, but until now, few people have been aware that she is also a trusted one -- a human who has been welcomed into mouse society. It is a great honor previously bestowed on the likes of E. B. White, Benjamin Franklin, and Marie Curie. Jackie became a trusted one while still in high school by rescuing an entire family of mice from the depths of a trombone just before a performance of The Music Man. She has enjoyed the company of mice ever since, and with starring prima!, she finally realizes a long-held ambition to share her insights into mouse culture with her fellow humans. She lives in Madison, Wisconsin, with her husband and six children.

From AudioFile:

Prima, the mouse dancer, may remind you of Angelina Ballerina in terms of her grace and talent, but the scope of this story is more like that of STUART LITTLE. Novelist Mitchard delves deeply into mouse history and customs, introducing us to many of Prima's ancestors before leading up to her triumph on stage. Mitchard reads her own work with gusto and pleasure. Though her pronounced Midwestern accent and her tendency to pause slightly to admire her own puns are a bit distracting at times, Mitchard so clearly enjoys herself reading this tale that it's likely most children will enjoy it, too.
