From Publishers Weekly
The heroine of Angelina Ballerina , it turns out, is as deft an entertainer twirling on ice as she is performing an onstage pas de deux. Here the spunky, diminutive mouse organizes a New Year's Eve figure skating show. With characteristic aplomb she overcomes a number of obstacles, including two pesky young hockey players who repeatedly interrupt her rehearsals. A confrontation between these "big boys" and Angelina erupts into a pond-wide snowball fight, vividly portrayed by Craig in a motion-filled, double-page illustration. This spectacle--as well as captivating depictions of both indoor scenes and the ice extravaganza--more than justifies the artist's top billing on the book's cover. But Holabird's narrative percolates steadily, and words and pictures culminate in a jubilant final scenario replete with well-deserved fireworks. Ages 3-7.

In this volume Angelina has to take Henry with her to the fair and she isn't happy about it and does a poor job of babysitting. All turns out well in the end after some tense moments.
This is our favorite Angelina story, maybe because she seems most like a real young girl in this one. As always, the touchstone of the tale is kindness, gentleness and patience. But not in a heavy handed way.
If you are new to Angelina this is a fine start. If you have a few Angelinas, this is a nice one to add to your collection.
The moral was a bit pushed...be nice to your little cousin.
And personally, in our house we aren't allowed to say we "hate" someone because it's freaking mean to say that! So I always have to skip over that part in here...
