Synopsis: Little Anna fell in love with ballet after watching a performance with her mother. At the age of just nine years old, she auditioned for the famous Imperial Ballet! But…she was rejected.

The set-back didn’t stop Anna—she auditioned again a year later and was accepted into the company. Although ballet was her passion, it didn’t always come easily to her, and she worked fiercely to become the best.  

After her training was complete, she performed across Russia and later formed her own company with which she toured the world. The story of Anna Pavlova, one of the greatest dancers to have ever lived, teaches us that with hard work, our talents can take us wherever we want to go.

Thank you so much Quarto Kids / Frances Lincoln Children’s and Netgalley for the ebook to read and review.

Review: Anna Pavlova one of the worlds most renowned ballerinas who went on to inspire and teach her dancing to the world. As a young child she loved ballet but wasn’t the best at it, but as she got older she became a prima and wowed everyone that saw her, as she traveled she wanted to teach ballet to those that couldn’t learn it.

This was a really good read it’s sweet that she was inspired so by ballet and only dreamt of doing it. She then went on to inspire millions with her talent in ballet, seeing the entire world showcasing all her talent. I adore how much she wanted for others to get the opportunity that she had and started to teach ballet whilst she was touring. It’s also so sweet that their dances inspired her too. It’s great that she went on to teach children, sharing her gift with the future ballerinas.

Another really great book in this inspiring series, with illustrations on each page and a sweet story to inspire children and show them that they can achieve their dreams with hard work and dedication.
