From Publishers Weekly:

Newly arrived in a quaint mountain village, Emma longs for friends to play with. When the dazzling Circus Umberto comes to town, the lonely girl is captivated--particularly by "a beautiful dancer in red shoes." Presented with her very own pair of red shoes (which, fortunately, bring greater joy than those of the classic ballet film) and instructed by her adored dancer, Emma is ecstatic--"surely the children would notice her now." When she gets the idea to put on a local circus, Emma wins kudos from the townspeople and, best of all, new friends and playmates. This sweetly told tale seems to come from another time and place, so warm and gentle is its style and message. Moodie's quietly expressive, impressionistic grey-and-blue-toned paintings burst into riotous colors to depict the exotic circus milieu, and her beguiling images linger in the mind long after the performers depart. Ages 5-8.

From School Library Journal:

In a mountain village, not too small and not too large, lives a girl named Emma. New in town, and lonely, she watches the other children play, and dreams of making them notice her. When a circus comes to the village, Emma becomes enchanted with a beautiful dancer who gives her a pair of red shoes and teaches her to pirouette. Hoping to win friends by impressing them, Emma demonstrates her dancing skills, but it is only when she enlists the aid of the other children in putting on their own circus that she joins their circle of friendship. Simply told and charmingly illustrated in rich and moody colors, this quiet tale will appeal to children's fantasies and the universal longing to belong. --Anna DeWind, Milwaukee Public Library
