Poppy was a pig.
A pot-bellied, waddling, toddling pig.
She was a pig with dreams. And she was a pig who dreamed big! She wanted to be a star.
Poppy had always dreamed of being a posh prima ballerina.
She tried out for Swan Lake, a famous ballet. But Poppy was not graceful. In fact, she was quite clumsy.
"Follow your dreams!" said Poppy's mother, who loved her no matter what. "You go, girl!" said Poppy's grandparents, who were her biggest fans. "Dream big, pig!" said Poppy's best friend, Emma, who was always there for her.
"Dancing is just not for you," said the people in charge of the ballet.
"Try something else!"(20110227)
