|Excerpt - Little Miss Tutu|
Selena was a little girl
Who did not walk so much as twirl
Who did not skip so much as prance
Because Selena loved to dance.
While all her friends ran off to play
Selena practiced her ballet.
She danced until her feet were sore
And then Selena danced some more....

Reviews - Little Miss Tutu
"In this rhyming story, Selena loves to twirl and prance, so her mother enrolls her in Miss Tutu's Dance Academy. Selena is a slightly chubby and not inherently graceful girl with plenty of bounce and a determination to succeed.... The protagonist is a likable character with lots of heart. Many children will recognize themselves in this agreeable offering."
