520 When Belinda's magnificently large ballet shoes get lost
en route to Paris, she must find another pair before her
performance in the Paris Opera.
520 From Booklist: PreS-Gr 2. The famously big-footed dancer
who made her picture-book debut in Belinda the Ballerina
(2002) is prepared to take Paris by storm--except for one
catastrophic detail: the airline has mistakenly shipped
her pointe shoes to Pago Pago. Belinda pounds the pavement
searching for a replacement pair of boat-sized ballet
slippers, but as a salesman at the finest specialty store
diplomatically informs her, there is not a shoe in all of
Paris that will fit such magnificent feet. Even the
cobbler is stymied; there's not a length of pink silk or a
form large enough for the job. Persistence pays, though,
and Belinda's fans will enjoy her triumph. Besides
illustrating Belinda's lively tale, the lightly stylized
paintings introduce children to the sights, the streets,
and the ambiance of Paris. Even better, the solution to
Belinda's problem has a distinctively Parisian flavor.
Like its predecessor, this picture book features an
engaging story, graceful illustrations, and, in Belinda,
an instantly recognizable character who is simply
magnifique. Carolyn Phelan: Copyright ̧American Library
Association. All rights reserved: : Book Description: All
of Paris was abuzz with the news-Belinda the ballerina was
coming to town! But when Belinda's extra-large ballet
shoes wind up in Pago Pago by mistake, she and a young
ballerina must hit the streets to look for a new pair.
Along the way, Belinda befriends a trio of Parisians, each
with his or her own problem. Can Belinda save the day and
still find ballet shoes before her performance that night?
New and old fans alike will cheer magnifique! for Amy
Young's big-footed (and big-hearted) ballerina, as she
wins over the City of Lights.
