Hi! My mom who is now 70 loved this book when she was young, she says it was an oblong book, possibly with padded covers with a girl named Ermalinda? I would be so thankful if anyone could help with this.

Is it The Dancing Queen by Rudy Finst?

The book the Dancing Queen by Rudy Finst was written by my great grandfather. My father's middle name is Finst. The Dancing Queen is about Queen Ermalinda who teaches dancing to little children in her castle. They are performing a recital and Queen Ermalinda wants children from other cultures to be in it, so she goes around the world finding children to sing and play. I myself have a few copies handed down from my grandmother, Sheila, who is mentioned in the book, and a few copies from my Aunt. They are not for sale, but you can find some copies on Amazon.
