Miss Tutu's Star
Illustrated by Carey Armstrong-Ellis
Published by Abrams Books, 2010

Selena loves to dance and so her mother takes her to Miss Tutu's School of Ballet, where, with a lot of help from her teacher and a little help from one mischievous cat, she becomes a star! Told in rhyming verse, this is charming picture book for anyone who loves to dance.


Why I wrote this book
As a child, I had a wonderful ballet teacher named Mrs. Saunders who always encouraged me despite my clumsiness. Miss Tutu's Star is for children like me who may not have the grace of a prima ballerina, but who do have a love of dance.
