About the Author:

Adèle Geras is a highly regarded children's author, with more than forty novels, retellings, and picture books to her name.

From Booklist:

Gr. 2^-4. Based on Geras' short story published in Britain, this beginning chapter book captures the dedication young ballerinas feel when they first learn to dance. Seven-year-old Louisa, nicknamed Weezer, is a good nagger and uses her skill to talk her mother into paying for ballet lessons. Annie, her older sister and the book's narrator, describes Weezer's excitement at being chosen to be a Little Swan in Swan Lake, her disappointment when her divorced father is unable to attend the ballet, and the pleasure she both gets and gives when she offers his ticket to a Russian neighbor. There's nothing very out of the ordinary here, but veteran writer Geras knows how to tell a story, and any child who likes ballet will respond to this one. Pencil illustrations enhance a text that should be just the right length for kids whose reading skills are past the easy-reader stage. Ilene Cooper
