Kindergarten-Grade 2–In this installment in the series, the young mouse's dance teacher invites her and Cousin Henry to the Royal Palace of Mouseland, and when Miss Lilly falls ill, Angelina must teach the three young princesses a special dance. The story is simple and a bit facile. Although the language is uninspired, it provides a good backdrop for Craig's artistic expression. The artist revels in the sumptuousness of mouse palace decor and lavishes her talent on turrets, ballrooms, and bedchambers, not to mention knights in full armor and costumes and scenery for the princesses' performance. Like its predecessors, Angelina at the Palace will evoke sighs of delight from young ballet enthusiasts.–Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY
