Through her graceful illustrations and retellings—describing the scene and the movements of the characters onstage as well as what they say and what happens—Jane Rosenberg presents a dozen classical ballets as picture book stories for readers 6 to 9. Here are the romantic arabesques of Giselle and the classical attitudes of The Sleeping Beauty, as well as Cinderella, Swan Lake, and The Nutcracker. Each tale includes page-filling watercolors in which sets, costumes, and lighting are depicted in detail, with additional brush drawings of particular dance positions, re-creating the experience of attending the ballet.

"A beautiful guide…. The richly detailed watercolor illustrations … evoke the mood and atmosphere of each ballet."—Prima Ballerina
