From the Inside Flap
Marie dreams of becoming the most famous ballerina in the world, but it is hard to find enough money for lessons. At last she begins modeling for the artist Edgar Degas, well-known for his paintings of dancers and horses and for his fiery temper. When his beautiful sculpture of ÂThe Little DancerÂ is finished, MarieÂs dream comes true.
Complete with reproductions of DegasÂ work, this is another inspirational story from Laurence AnholtÂs bestselling series, celebrating some of the worldÂs greatest artists and the real children who knew them.

One note, there are some sad themes in the story, which made our 3.5 yr old daughter a little sad, but in the end, they are good life lessons.
