But when she learns that Grandpa is going on vacation and will miss the performance, Rosie almost ruins his plans. In the end she learns a bit about selflessness and friendship. This simple, realistic story will be satisfying to fans of Rosie and ballet. Copyright 1998 Horn Book Guide Reviews

Gr 1-4 Another delightful addition to the series. Rosie O'Meara is planning a special birthday surprise for her grandfather: her ballet class is going to dance the story of "Cinderella." Conflicts arise when Grandpa is invited to visit England, where old family and familiar places await him, and he will miss the ballet surprise. When he decides to stay home, Rosie realizes he is only doing it for her and urges him to go. All ends happily with a family party before he leaves. Ballet terms are sprinkled throughout and are defined in a glossary. While there is enough about ballet to satisfy dance lovers, Rosie's relationships with her best friend and her brother make this a well-rounded story about family and friends. Durrell's lighthearted line illustrations highlight the text. An easy-to-read chapter book that will hold young readers' interest until the last "entrechat." Janet M.
