This book is about a girl who likes dancing. She has big feet and the other kids giggle at her during ballet class. She dreams about being a ballerina. But, she never stops and she keeps on trying!

I liked the story because dancing is my favorite thing to do. I liked the character Sassy because she got to be a ballerina. I also like the story because it has good pictures. This book reminds me of when I took ballet lessons.

If you like ballerinas, you should read this book. It is a good book.
