The world is big.
Anna is small.
The snow is
        and all around.
But one night . . .
One night, her mother takes her to the ballet, and everything is changed. Anna finds a beauty inside herself that she cannot contain.

So begins the journey of a girl who will one day grow up to be the most famous prima ballerina of all time, inspiring legions of dancers after her: the brave, the generous, the transcendently gifted Anna Pavlova. Beautiful, inspirational, and triumphant, Anna Pavlova's life is masterfully captured in this exquisite picture book.

    This book is beautiful! The illustrations steal the show, but the text about young Anna working through adversity to get what she wants and then sharing her passion with the world doesn't drag the pictures down at all.

    The writing and illustrations themselves are evocative of Anna Pavlova herself! Very beautiful and could be a great inspiration for young dancers.
