Angelina and Henry visit the Royal Palace of Mouseland to help teach the princesses a special ballet for the King and Queen's wedding anniversary. To Angelina's horror, Miss Lilly is confined to her bed with a terrible cold and Angelina is asked to be in charge. When she finds the 'perfect' princesses squabbling in the ballroom, she realizes they are just like other mouselings and loses her nerves. She soon teaches them to be magic fairies and the ballet is a great success.

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
