From Booklist:

Gr. 4^-7. Illustrated with pastels, this handsome book retells the stories of eight ballets that children might see performed, including Coppelia, Giselle, The Firebird, The Nutcracker, and Swan Lake. The writing is fluid, and the impressionistic artwork brings out the special quality of each piece. Young dancers will particularly enjoy the general introduction by former ballerina Irina Baranova. Following the story of each ballet are Baranova's personal "performance notes," usually her memories of the principal roles she danced with the Ballets Russes. A useful, attractive addition to arts collections. Carolyn Phelan

From Publishers Weekly:

Belinda Hollyer and illustrator Sophy Williams promise to sweep readers off their feet with Stories from the Ballet. Closely following the publication of The Random House Book of Stories from the Ballet (noted Aug. 28), this romantic collection of eight such favorites as Swan Lake and Giselle distinguishes itself with an introduction and performance notes by former prima ballerina Irina Baronova. For an added sprinkling of stardust, glamorous photographs of the dancer are also included (Viking, $15.99, ages 8-12 ISBN 0-670-86605-9 Sept.).
