Summary 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.
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.

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.
