Book Description

May 5 2009 Sugar Plum Ballerinas (Quality) (Book 2)

A ballet slipper-ey slope

Brenda Black prides herself on her logical and orderly mind. She studies anatomy books to get a twelve-year head start on medical school, and she idolizes Leonardo da Vinci. But things go haywire when her spoiled cousin Tiffany comes to visit. At first Brenda tries to ignore Tiffany's constant bragging. But when Tiffany implies that Brenda is not cultured enough to know who Miss Camilla Freeman is--Miss Camilla Freeman, the very famous prima ballerina--Brenda snaps. She tells Tiffany that not only does she know who Camilla Freeman is, but she happens to own an autographed pair of her toeshoes. So of course, Tiffany wants to see the shoes.

The only problem? The shoes actually belong to Ms. Debb , the headmistress of the Nutcracker School! Brenda's anatomy books might get her into medical school, but they can't get her out of this mess--for that, she'll need the help of her Sugar Plum Sisters!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sugar Plum Ballerinas Part 2: Toeshoe Trouble July 7 2009
By Gloria - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
My 10 year old grandniece read it in one day because she was so interested. the same thing happened with sugar Plum Ballerinas #1. In my opinion, these books provide, not only good entertainment for kids, particularly girls, but also a good example. Honesty and a strong self-esteem permeates the two books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sugar Plum Ballerinas strike again! May 30 2009
By E.A. Poe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This second book in the Sugar Plum Ballerina series lives up to the charm of its predecessor. Twelve-year-old Brenda Black, admirer of Da Vinci, diligent student of anatomy, and a budding ballet student, gets a visit from a spoiled rich cousin, who goads her into claiming that she owns an autographed pair of Miss Camilla Freeman's toeshoes. The shoes do exist, but they belong to Brenda's teacher. When her cousin demands to see them, Brenda launches a desperate plot to steal them, aided by her Sugar Plum Ballerina friends. After some bumps along the way, all ends well, and Brenda learns valuable lessons about herself and her cousin. My wife, a pediatrician, snatched my copy for her waiting room, where it is as big a hit with her patients as the first book in the series. Hope the series continues!

5.0 out of 5 stars We love these books! June 5 2009

This is the second book in the Sugar Plum Ballerinas series. We loved both books. We found the books entertaining. Whoopi injects a little of her sense of humor with a lesson for young girls. My daughter loves the characters and I love the story lines.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whoopy for Whoopie!! July 7 2010
By GrannyX7 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Another winner in the series! I like the fact that some of the words are a little more challenging than some other children's books. My granddaughter had no trouble reading and understanding them (she was in first grade when she read first one). There may have been 2 words in each book she actually had to ask help for (didn't know meaning of word). I also love the fact that each book has a little moral in it and in this one it's the consequences of jealousy and lieing. Kudos to Miss Goldberg on creating a series kids and parents will love!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Gift for an aspiring Ballerina Oct. 30 2011
By M. C. Wallace - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was purchased for my grandaughters birthday. She always refers to herself as a Princess Ballerina. She loves the story and seeing pretty girls that are brown like her is even better. she tells her friends in her ballet class about the book. I will be purchasing the series for her. Great books!
