    1. When Miss Lina's dancers have the chance to perform in a production of Sleeping Beauty, Regina is jealous of the other performers since she has been assigned to dance as a rat. At night, as she lies in bed, she wishes that someone would fall ill so that she can have the chance to waltz. She gets her chance since one by one, the other girls become ill or injure themselves in some way. But Regina can't possibly take all their places. Thank goodness she realizes the error of her ways and takes her [...]

    2. I actually really enjoyed this book because of the personal connection it had for me. When I was younger, I was assigned a part in a ballet that I had not originally wanted. However, with time, I realized that the part was perfect for me. The overall theme of the book works well for a young dancer who might be upset about an assigned part.

    3. This book is strongly reminiscent of Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans. The story is entertaining and the rhymes mostly work, although it's a bit awkward when the second part of a couplet is on the next page. Our youngest was a big fan of ballet when she was little, so books about dancing are still hits with her. The illustrations by Christine Davenier are really recognizable and the characters are similar to her work in the Iris and Walter and Piper Reed series. Overall, it was an entertaining story [...]

    4. Regina is nervous when a guest comes to watch the ballet class dance, and when she is cast as a rat rather than a waltzer, she wishes some other girl will get sick so Regina can waltz instead. As might be expected, a lesson is learned about wishing ill on others. One nice feature was that the ballet class included a boy along with 9 girls.

    5. A fun ballerina book that, in some small respect, reminds me a bit of the Madeline books I enjoyed as a childokay, well, I still love Madeline. :)The rhyme scheme sometimes swerves and/or becomes repetitive, but well worth a read.

    6. A be careful what you wish for story if ever there was one. Includes a glossary and a brief telling of the Sleeping Beauty version in the ballet.

    7. 51 months - this wouldn't be a hit for everyone but little ballerina appreciate the ballet terms. The first Miss Lina book we read had my daughter doing arabesques and spins all over the house!

    8. We love the poetic tone to the book, the lesson to do your best in the part your given, the ballet terms, and the cute illustrations.

    9. Very cute! Wish I could've read the one before this so I wasn't so surprised by the appearance of Tony, but when it comes back into the library, I will!

    10. Third offering of the Miss Lina's Ballerinas series. Lovely artwork and tone that is reminiscent of the Madeline stories.

    11. I really enjoyed the unusual rhyme scheme in this book. There are also lovely moments of delicious vocabulary. Children interested in dancing will especially be drawn to this story.

    12. I appreciate the lesson in this book and the rhyming, rhyming, rhyming. Didn't realize the parallels between the story and Madeline until reading a couple other reviews. Even better!

    13. My daughter is a ballerina and so I might be a little biased, but I found this adorable. Wish bad on someone and bad things will happen to you!!

    14. cute story and illustrations. Very basic ballet intro for little ones looking to try ballet and showing interest in dance. lesson learned be careful what you wish for.

    15. Great little story about being careful what you wish for. I love the glossary at the end also! I'd really like to work it into a story time and actually have the kids try to do the moves at the end!

    16. Sometimes you get what you wish for and it turns out nothing like you expected. A good story with nice illustrations.
