"...sweetly comical. …an old-fashioned, Euro-centric take on ballet, with everyone in tutus and pink pointe shoes, but ballet fans will enjoy the graceful poses, the fairy tale-pretty woods, and the kindliness of the dancers willing to include bunnies in their love for dance."
-- Horn Book

"Toyofuku creates her own sort of magic here, telling a small, gentle story with precisely chosen words and lovely illustrations, which have the look of pencil drawings with watercolor washes. The text reads aloud well. First published in Japan, this lyrical picture book hits just the right notes for small ballet students with big dreams."
