Prima, the mouse dancer, may remind you of Angelina Ballerina in terms of her grace and talent, but the scope of this story is more like that of STUART LITTLE. Novelist Mitchard delves deeply into mouse history and customs, introducing us to many of Prima's ancestors before leading up to her triumph on stage. Mitchard reads her own work with gusto and pleasure. Though her pronounced Midwestern accent and her tendency to pause slightly to admire her own puns are a bit distracting at times, Mitchard so clearly enjoys herself reading this tale that it's likely most children will enjoy it, too.
