More About the Author

Kirsten Hall is a native New Yorker. After college, where she majored in English and minored in Child Development, Hall taught preschool, Kindergarten, and 2nd grade while earning a degree in Early Childhood Education in NYU's Masters program.

Hall's first easy reader book was written (and published) when she was in the 7th grade. Since then she has written approximately 150 early reader and chapter books for children, on a broad range of topics, for publishers including Scholastic, HarperCollins, Barnes & Noble, Random House, and Chronicle.

Hall recently wrote her first trade picture book, The Jacket, illustrated by Dasha Tolstikova. Published in October 2014 by Enchanted Lion Books, The Jacket has since earned an honorable mention from the Huffington Post for 'Most Charming Picture Book' in 2014. It was also selected as an 'Editor's Choice' at The New York Times. And it was subsequently one of The New York Times's picks for 25 'Notable Children's Books of 2014.'

In addition to writing, Hall operates her own boutique illustration and literary agency, Catbird Productions. Founded in 2014, it has already agented its first New York Times bestseller.

Hall currently resides in New York City with her husband and two sons.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent first reader book. The book contains 33 easy to recognize words that are repeated. The story is also presented in rhyme. Pictures provide clues to the text and add to the story's depth.

We read and reread this book often. It is a cute story and the illustrations are so well done. Recommend it for little girls, especially ballerinas.

Beautiful book. Illustration of the little girl looks like my little ballerina in training to the T - curly hair and all! My daughter is almost three and beginning ballet, so I purchased this book to read to her the week before ballet class began. She loves it and we've read it every night for over a week. It is a very simple book and is marketed as a "I Can Read" book, so the story is just simple one line sentences. But the illustrations are BEAUTIFUL and feature full page color illustrations! Perfect gift for the beginner ballerina under age 5.

This book is short but my daughter loves it. It has a cute rhyming story. Most ballet storybooks have blond haired girls this is refreshing in that this character does not...I think that is why my daughter loves it too.

This book was a gift for my 3 1/2 year old grandniece. When she called me (with her Mom's help) to thank me, she repeated the entire story. She is totally into ballet, which, by the way, she calls Ball-ah-let.
