At first, Angelina thinks having a baby sister will be wonderful. But with all the fuss over baby Polly, Angelina begins to feel left out. And when Grandma and Grandpa don't stop to watch her dance, she completely loses her temper, and breaks the china dancer she won as a prize. With her spirited personality, her determination to become the best dancer she can be, and her enchanting world of English cottages and castles, the little mouse known as Angelina Ballerina has been a favorite among 4-to-8-year-olds since she appeared in 1983. She has even been a "spokesmouse" for National Dance Week. Katharine Holabird's tiny heroine faces many of the same disappointments and triumphs as her readers, and Helen Craig's detailed ink and watercolor illustrations are charming.
