2010 Award
Miss Tutu's Star
( by Leslie Newman/ illus by Carey Armstrong-Ellis, Abrams Books $16.95 Score: )

At last, a young ballerina who does not look like an angelic beauty in pink. Perhaps Selena is a bit on the homely side and she's also a bit of a klutz, but this is a dancer with heart and spirit. She does not give up. Maybe she will appeal to kids who can watch Selena and the others and honestly say to themselves...I'm better than that. The slapstick recital that is messed up by some unexpected participants add the fun of this little romp. Angelina Ballerina, she's not. The illustrations also include a very chubby little dancer who might star in the next recital Miss Tutu is staging.  4-7.
