Synopsis

Lucy Dancer - Lucy’s dream is . . . not ballet. She wants to fly. She leaps on the shore with feathers, she practices gymnastics, but it’s dancing that really sets her free.

Lucy unexpectedly finds the treasure of her spirit in dance and the world of dancers.

Splashed with humor, engaging and charming watercolors, and a delightful and appealing personal story, Lucy Dancer has the ring of authenticity and real-life emotions that link effortlessly to experiences and an imagination we can all share.


Praise

Lucy Dancer reads like the truth, like Eva lived it. The art is expressive, fun and very moving … a great tribute to the world of dance, practice and determination. Bravo!“
Phoebe Stone, Parents Choice award-winning author of The Boy on Cinnamon Street and Romeo Blue

“As a professional dancer who had started her first steps at the age of 10, I enjoyed every page of Lucy Dancer! Today I am a mother of a 7 year old girl and we had a great time together reading the book.The illustrations are wonderful and fun. I felt very touched by the story that reminds us that when you have a dream, and you set your goals nothing can stop you. I believe this is a must-have book in the library of any kid. Abrazos!”
Noel Strazza
