Can Ella Bella help the swan princess to be reunited with her prince? Will she help to break the wicked sorcerer's spell? Will true love conquer all?

Young ballerinas will find the answer to all these questions and delight in the sheer charm of Ella Bella's world. James Mayhew has also included a last page full of ballet facts to help even the keenest budding ballerina learn about the story behind Swan Lake.

Varied use of colour and clever depiction of movement make this a truly enchanting book.


Mayhew gently introduces some of the world's most famous ballets to younger readers.
