I recognized the ballet that I used to see every year at Christmas time. I ope I will be able to see it again. It was always my favourite part of Christmas. The illustraions are beautiful. I am familiar with this illustrator. I love it when ballet dancers retell ballet stories. I have also read Margot Fonteyn's Swan Lake which is wonderful.
