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.
“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
"The elegant and lyrical lines of the drawings strongly evoke the feel of dancing, (and) the text of the book stands beautifully on its own."
Sarah Dillard, author & illustrator of I Wish It Would Snow! and the Mouse Scouts series.
“Lucy’s vision of life as a dancer will keep you hooked until the end. For her emotion, experiences, and relationships are nothing other than opportunities for movement and joy. This is something we could all use in our everyday lives” Tomás Howlin, Tango Maestro
“Eva Zimet has given us an account of the evolution of a dancer so straight-forward and spare, yet so rich in emotion and relationships, that all I can say is, Bravo! Rebecca Riley, Portals Center for Healing
