Magic Ballerina: Delphie and the Magic Ballet Shoes

Delphie has always dreamed of dancing, and her wish seems to be coming true when she joins Madame Zarakova’s ballet school. But she gets even more than she dreamed of when she slips on her new ballet shoes… and they whisk her away to Enchantia, a fairytale world where dancers twirl and pirouette from dawn till dusk. What adventures will Delphie find in Enchantia? And where on earth will the magic ballet shoes take her next?

This shimmering, magical book is the first in a new series written by one of the world’s great ballet stars: Darcey Bussell, former Prima Ballerina with the Royal Ballet.

    I read these books when I was littler… I had the whole set and loved them. They took me ages to read then but now they would probably only take me one hour if that! I would recomend them to ages 8+!
