This bestselling story has been brilliantly adapted for audio CD and there are two readings - the first is a straight reading with music, and the second has a 'special sound' to indicate where to turn the page as you read along in the book. Angelina is so excited when she and her cousin Henry are invited to take part in a grown-ups' ballet. During rehearsals, Angelina's excitement turns to jealousy when Henry becomes the favourite of the famous star, Madame Zizi. But after near disaster on opening night, Angelina and Henry become better friends than ever.
