Ballerina Swan (2013)

Examiner Reviews Ballerina Swan: “a perfect tale for children”

Ballerina Swan is a perfect tale for children who love ballet… and for those who need the reminder that nothing, not even raw talent, will ever take the place of hard work.

It is the story of a swan who consciously decides to become a ballerina, and then does everything in her power to achieve her goal.

The central message is that anyone could be a dancer… if they worked hard enough.

— Alina Adams, on Ballerina Swan
