Starring Prima!: The Mouse of the Ballet Jolie Reviews
gr 3-5 152 pgsFantasy, Mice. Prima comes from a long line of mice ballerinas and from the moment she is born everyone in the Ballet Jolie knows that she will be a star. Prima is fascinated by the human ballerinas which gets her into trouble. When she is discovered and befriended by the daughter of one of the ballerinas, Prima is excited. When her human friend invites Prima to come and live with her, Prima sees this as her chance to see the world, but is the world ready for a dancing mouse?Great story!!! Nice gentle read, recommended for readers who like stories about talking animals.
I have an autographed copy of this book from when EJ was little and I took her to a reading and book signing of Jacquelyn's in FB. EJ was being noisy as any two year old would be and I was trying to get her to be quite. Jacquelyn interrupted her talk and said she can be as loud as she wants! She has kids and understood. Thought that was pretty neat.
This book made me cry. It's precious and delightful.It tells the story of a mouse called Prima. She was born the runt and lives in a piano at a studio(?) with her parents. The special thing about Prima, is that she is really good at ballet.
Cute. Lots of convenient plot elements (all mice write in the same language but speak different ones?), but my six-year-old daughter loved it. So I'm going with her opinion.
3.5 stars ***
This book is SO cute. I first read it when I was about eleven. The mouse is just the most adorable thing ever!! =)
