Katharine Holabird’s first Angelina Ballerina book was published in 1983. After graduating from the Francis Parker School in Chicago, Katharine attended Bennington College in Vermont. She received a B.A. in Literature from Bennington in 1969, and then worked as a literary editor at the college for a year. The following year she went to Italy, where she became a freelance journalist. In 1974, Katharine married and moved with her husband, Michael Haggiag, to London, England where she lives today with her family.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1—What is it about the "Angelina" books that children find so satisfying? In addition to illustrations full of charming details discovered over many readings and a generous appearance of pink tutus and ballet slippers, it's probably this character's spunk and persistence. In this story, while chugging along on her grandparents' canal boat, the mouseling is determined to "think up a special dance." At first, her grandparents gently remind her that all paws are needed "on deck," then sternly suggest that sailors are too busy to dance, and so it goes until Angelina tumbles into a can of oil and ruins her costume. As in the previous books, there is a lesson to learn, and supportive adults are reassuringly present to help guide the resourceful mouse as she arrives at a solution to her problem. If fans of this ballerina frequent your picture book section, be sure to buy more than one copy.—Daryl Grabarek, School Library Journal
