Something of the friendship between a girl and her dog is captured in this clever and funny story about a girl and her dog, who has talent and ambition beyond the ordinary.
fun read-aloud potential,maybe a little long and too wordy. A dog longs to do ballet, he follows a little girl to class and to the Met, where he save the day.
A plump and solemn little girl explains about her unusual dog, "My dog is not like other dogs....My dog thinks he's a ballet dancer!" As the little girl goes to ballet and then to a special performance by the Royal Ballet, her dog Biff sneaks along, but everyone says the same thing, "Dogs don't do ballet!" and out he goes. When there's a sudden emergency, guess who pops up on stage and wows the crowd?I love the colorful illustrations and the sneaky little dog. The whole story is simply incredibly funny - something about the placid faces of the people and Biff's expressionless doggy face combined with the wild antics make me giggle the whole way through.Verdict: Perfect for story time and endless giggling!
