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 expects her to become the lead dancer with the American Ballet Rodente. Such an honor should be enough for any mouselet, but Prima has even bigger plans. She won't be satisfied until she can share her talent with all creatures -- even humans. Now, as any mouse with half a brain knows, the last thing you want to do around a human is to draw attention to yourself, but will that stop Prima? Not on your tutu!
Jacquelyn Mitchard brings to her first novel for young readers the same eye for detail, ear for dialogue and affection for characters that made The Deep End of the Ocean and Twelve Times Blessed bestsellers.

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.
