Book Review #905
I Dreamed I Was a Ballerina by Anna Pavlova, illustrated by Edgar Degas
Rating: one star (out of four)
The story felt stiff and flat. I wanted more detail about the little girl or for the story to be told in a different format. I liked the idea of having the illustrations consist of Degas paintings and sketches, but I didn't feel like all of them went with the story. Overall I wasn't impressed with this book and felt like it needed a little more effort put into it.
