Thomas loves ballet school. He loves wiggling in to his snug pointe shoes. He loves lining his heels up tightly for first position at the barre. He loves doing hopping-bunny sautés! And when it's time to choose their outfits for their Christmas performance of The Nutcracker, Thomas is quick to pick out a purpley sparkly dress. "You're the Sugar Plum Fairy, Thomas!", Mr Elliot declares. Thomas adores his new role but he's also worried about his butterfly flutters. Will he find his inner magic in time?

In praise of ballet children everywhere with inner pages illustrating key ballet positions from pirouettes through to arabesques. 'This charming book will delight ballet loving boys but its joy and positivity will appeal to many others as well.. the whole thing sparkles with affirmation' (Mark Jennett, Equalities Trainer/Consultant, Letterbox Library reviewer). (n.b.: Black protagonist; mixed race family; two mums). Age 3-6, Paperback 27pp
