On Your Toes: A Ballet ABC

Rachel Isadora, Author, Rachel Isadora, Illustrator Greenwillow Books $17.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-06-050238-6
Visions of tutus will dance in readers' heads as they peruse two new ballet books. From former ballet dancer and accomplished author/artist Rachel Isadora, On Your Toes: A Ballet ABC partners jewel-toned pastel drawings with an abecedary ranging from Arabesque to Zipper. A detailed glossary describes the ballets depicted in specific pictures, defines terms and adds depth; for Zipper, for example, Isadora notes that dancers may make as many as six costume changes in a single performance.
