Horn Book Review

A miniature version of the original Angelina picture book has cheap paper and a shoddy binding. Moreover, the reduced size of illustration makes the pictures difficult to see.

Kirkus Review

There are two good things to be said for this dainty conceit involving a balletic mouse: Holabird's sweet-dreams-to-stardom story can't miss; and Craig really knows how to draw balletic mice. Angelina, dancing down the stairs, doing curtseys on the bed, twirling across the playground, is a disarming, even enchanting ""nuisance."" When her parents succumb to ballet lessons, the classroom views sparkle. (As the story has to have it, she's now a model child.) And in the last double-page spread, she's starring in a splendiferous theater--cross-sectioned to show the mouse-audience and the mouse-workers, from the heights to the depths. From the balletomane clutter of Angelina's snug bedroom under the eaves, it's all of a light-hearted, light-footed piece. Copyright ©Kirkus Reviews, used with permission.
