Angelina sets off with Grandma and Grandpa on a canal boat to the Mouseland Dance Festival. She is so excited that she practises her new dance all the way but she tumbles into a can of oil and ruins her costume! Luckily Grandma and Grandpa come to the rescue, and show her how to be a proper sailor too. When they get to the festival, the crowds love Angelina's dance and cheer for more - she is truly the star of the show.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1—What is it about the "Angelina" books that children find so satisfying? In addition to illustrations full of charming details discovered over many readings and a generous appearance of pink tutus and ballet slippers, it's probably this character's spunk and persistence. In this story, while chugging along on her grandparents' canal boat, the mouseling is determined to "think up a special dance." At first, her grandparents gently remind her that all paws are needed "on deck," then sternly suggest that sailors are too busy to dance, and so it goes until Angelina tumbles into a can of oil and ruins her costume. As in the previous books, there is a lesson to learn, and supportive adults are reassuringly present to help guide the resourceful mouse as she arrives at a solution to her problem. If fans of this ballerina frequent your picture book section, be sure to buy more than one copy.—Daryl Grabarek, School Library Journal
