Help Cinderella to get to the ball and enter the magical world of the ballet with the adorable Ella Bella Ballerina!
James created his first Katie book 'Katie's Picture Show' over twenty years ago as a way to share his enthusiasm for art with children. His series of eight Katie books are much-loved and respected as an early introduction to art. 'Ella Bella Ballerina and The Sleeping Beauty' was James' first title featuring the adorable ballerina, which was quickly followed by the glorious 'Ella Bella and Cinderella'. Look out for 'Ella Bella and Swan Lake', the next title in the series. Each story has been illustrated using a new delightfully retro art style. James lives in Letchworth, Hertfordshire with his wife and son.
Mayhew's sweetly imaginative heroine returns, brought to life in lively paint and ink illustrations. When Ella Bella loses one of her ballet slippers, Madame Rosa lets her select a replacement pair. As Ella dances to her teacher's music box playing Cinderella, she enters the story itself, as Cinderella's fairy godmother and the "Fairies of the Four Seasons" enlist her help. Ella picks out a pair of silver shoes for Cinderella and tags along through the rest of the fairy tale. A whimsical romp for ballet lovers. Ages 4-8. (Nov.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
