The cranky ballerina

 

Here's my latest book!  Ada hates everything about ballet class, yet she still has to go! Arabesques? Grotesque! And then one Saturday, Ada pliés right out the door and into the hallway, smacking into someone who thinks her ungraceful moves are great

Based on a true story (OK, MINE), Ada will demonstrate that being angry is OK, that being bad at something doesn't mean you're bad at everything, and that you have to experiment to find your way. Hope you'll like it!

Excellent review from The Quill and Quire

I am delighted with this review from my latest book, The Cranky Ballerina, from The quill and Quire. They compare me to Kate Beaton, Jon Klassen and Melanie Watt!! I think I'm going to explode with pride.
