Illus. in full color. "Angelina is invited to perform as a magic fairy in a real grown-ups' ballet. She's delighted, but less so when her goofy younger cousin Henry is asked to perform in the ballet, too. The book gently reflects an older child's ambivalent feelings. But it is also a delightful story."--Publishers Weekly.About the Author:
