Tilly Tiptoes Takes a Curtain Call by Caroline Plaisted

Review by The Mole

When the choreographer Mitzi Morgan decides to give the premier of her new ballet at The Grand Theatre then there is a chance for Tilly to be one of the dancers. There  is hard work ahead for all the Extras but Tilly has been given number 13 as her audition number. Bad luck starts to strike her at every opportunity but can she get over it and get through the auditions?

This is one for the very young ballet fans out there. Packed with ballet terms and walking the reader through the audition and even rehearsal procedures it is bound to delight those going to ballet school as  well as those wanting to go. The publisher says it is aimed at the 7+ reader but I would say it's appeal will start younger at 6+. An easy read with delightful line drawings peppered throughout and a plot that is essentially 'nice' - that is to say very little jealousy, backbiting and bullying, something that tends to be a foundation stone of stories like this.

Publisher - Catnip Publishing
Genre - Children's 6+ fiction
