Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Emma, who loves catching frogs and digging for pirate treasure, is not at all happy when she receives a frilly pink ballerina outfit in the mail. “What was Uncle Leo thinking?” With advice and a humorous demonstration from the postman on how to be a ballerina, Emma gives it a go. Unfortunately, her antics wreak havoc and land her in the petunias. Determined not to disappoint Uncle Leo when he visits, Emma ignores advice from family and friends and makes up her own dancing rules. Wilsdorf’s fluid and action-filled illustrations enhance the story, playing up the role of the big-eyed family cat, who ends up wearing the tutu and cavorting around the living room. It turns out Leo did know his niece after all (the tutu was sent instead of the safari outfit by mistake). Though hampered by an abrupt ending as Emma knocks over a fishbowl, this humorous tale will appeal to the many girls who will identify with Emma. Preschool-Grade 3. --Patricia Austin

More About the Author

I've worked as a nurse and librarian but my favorite job by far is Children's Book Author! I've been making up stories since I was a child and being able to share them with others is amazing. I love to write books. I love to read books. I love to talk about books... Hmmm, I see a theme developing here!

Format: Hardcover
Skeers' book sends an important message to little girls everywhere--it's okay to break the mold. The main character, Emma, receives a tutu as a gift. She tries to make the most of it, but it's just not her style! Not everyone loves pink, and tomboys everywhere will be able to relate to this clever plot. This book breaks down traditional images and carves a new identification for girls. And while there's nothing wrong with tutus, it's even better to be yourself! Thanks for a quiet message. This is a good book.
