Product Details


“Tallchief’s single-minded passion, conveyed in a clear, poetic narrative, will hold appeal and meaning for an audience beyond that of hopeful ballerinas.”–The Horn Book

“Kelley’s softly focused paintings underscore the lyrical tone, enveloping the characters and settings in gauzy, dreamlike light and concentrating, provocatively, on stillness as opposed to movement.”–Publisher’s Weekly

“ Large, rather impressionistic illustrations evoke period and place as well as Maria’s love for her art.”–Children’s Literature

“The text and artwork combine to make a pleasing introduction to a fascinating person. Wells’s personal connection to ballet and Tallchief, explained in the introduction, makes this effort all the more stirring. All told, a simple, lovely offering.”–School Library Journal
