About This Book
With Paris-inspired pen-and-ink illustrations, this charming picture-book debut by an American ballet dancer stars Désirée, a spirited rabbit reaching for her dreams
Désirée Rabbit loves to dance, and her sleek bunny form makes her a natural! But her dream to be a famous ballet dancer in her hometown of Paris, France, is always met with one response: "There are no bunnies in the ballet!" Not a rabbit to be discouraged, Désirée marches herself down to the ballet studio to begin classes. Soon enough, she has won over her classmates and mastered all her positions. And on the opening night of "The Nutcracker," she may finally get her chance to shine!
With the quiet charm of Madeline and the sweet sass of Eloise, here is a classic in the making. Debut author/illustrator Bob Beck brings us into Désirée's world with graceful, playful lines and splashes of color as vivid as Paris itself.
