My students are participating in a unit about Walter Dean Myers. This title was brought in by the librarian. The art lured me in.

I'm not really familiar with "Swan Lake" but I like how Walter Dean Myers talked about his inspiration arising from a viewing of the ballet. I think I need a stronger ballet foundation to truly appreciate the book. I would love to do a two-day unit on Amiri & Odette using the ballet, music, and book together.

I really think the book will do better with more mature readers. I'm curious as to how it will be received by the 11-15 year old crowd.
