Overview
Ella Bella loves her ballet class, which is conducted by the kindly Madame Rosa at an old theatre that seems touched by magic. One day, when Ella loses one of her slippers, Madame Rosa lends her another pair for dancing--and is then reminded of Cinderella and her story of the lost slipper. Madame Rosa recounts the tale to her students, and Ella Bella listens with heightened interest. When their day s lesson has ended Ella lingers at the theatre, then opens Madame Rosa s music box and listens as it plays melodies from the "Cinderella" ballet. Suddenly, Cinderella s fairy godmother magically appears, and Ella Bella is transported into the beloved story of Cinderella. This delightful book s final page describes the ballet "Cinderella, " with music by the great Russian composer, Sergei Prokofiev."

Mayhew's sweetly imaginative heroine returns, brought to life in lively paint and ink illustrations. When Ella Bella loses one of her ballet slippers, Madame Rosa lets her select a replacement pair. As Ella dances to her teacher's music box playing Cinderella, she enters the story itself, as Cinderella's fairy godmother and the “Fairies of the Four Seasons” enlist her help. Ella picks out a pair of silver shoes for Cinderella and tags along through the rest of the fairy tale. A whimsical romp for ballet lovers. Ages 4–8. (Nov.)
