My 10 year old grandniece read it in one day because she was so interested. the same thing happened with sugar Plum Ballerinas #1. In my opinion, these books provide, not only good entertainment for kids, particularly girls, but also a good example. Honesty and a strong self-esteem permeates the two books.

This second book in the Sugar Plum Ballerina series lives up to the charm of its predecessor. Twelve-year-old Brenda Black, admirer of Da Vinci, diligent student of anatomy, and a budding ballet student, gets a visit from a spoiled rich cousin, who goads her into claiming that she owns an autographed pair of Miss Camilla Freeman's toeshoes. The shoes do exist, but they belong to Brenda's teacher. When her cousin demands to see them, Brenda launches a desperate plot to steal them, aided by her Sugar Plum Ballerina friends. After some bumps along the way, all ends well, and Brenda learns valuable lessons about herself and her cousin. My wife, a pediatrician, snatched my copy for her waiting room, where it is as big a hit with her patients as the first book in the series. Hope the series continues!

This is the second book in the Sugar Plum Ballerinas series. We loved both books. We found the books entertaining. Whoopi injects a little of her sense of humor with a lesson for young girls. My daughter loves the characters and I love the story lines.

Another winner in the series! I like the fact that some of the words are a little more challenging than some other children's books. My granddaughter had no trouble reading and understanding them (she was in first grade when she read first one). There may have been 2 words in each book she actually had to ask help for (didn't know meaning of word). I also love the fact that each book has a little moral in it and in this one it's the consequences of jealousy and lieing. Kudos to Miss Goldberg on creating a series kids and parents will love!!

This book was purchased for my grandaughters birthday. She always refers to herself as a Princess Ballerina. She loves the story and seeing pretty girls that are brown like her is even better. she tells her friends in her ballet class about the book. I will be purchasing the series for her. Great books!

I like to read all the Sugar Plum books. They are good books. I started reading them as paperbacks. Now I can read them on my Kindle.

You spoke to the heart of our babies of today. And although the characters are rooted in African American culture, My Sugar Plum baby shares these stories with her non Af. Am. friends and they too are entranced by the stories. Hi-Cap to you!!!

These sweet, lovable characters will steal your heart in this mischievous children's story. The smart aleck attitude of Tiffany strengthens the plot. Great story. Bravo! Cherlina Works - author of Jewel's Magical Christmas

My daughter who is 9 loves these books. For the first time she actually wants to read for enjoyment and not just because she has to. She likes the characters and the storyline keeps her engaged. I highly recommend this book.
