The Magic Ballet Shoes (Magic Ballerina, #1) by Darcey Bussell

This is a lovely children’s book that is bursting with suspense, excitement and wonder. In this story we learn of Delphie, a young girl obsessed with ballet who longs to take classes at Madame Zaravkova’s dance school. Unfortunately, Delphie’s parents cannot afford to send her to this ballet school so Delphie satisfies her desire by reading as many books as she can, and teaching herself the steps. One day, Delphie is walking home from school when she sees two girls running up the path to the ballet school. Delphie sneaks up and watches from the window. While standing outside in the cold, Delphie joins in with the ballet moves and is spotted by Madame Zarakova. Madame Zarakova brings her in and compliments her on her beautiful dancing. She gives Delphie a leotard and a special pair of red ballet shoes; she tells her that the shoes are very special and have been waiting for the right person to come along. Delphie is shocked when Madame Zarakova states she will teach her for free. Delphie is ecstatic and runs home to tell her parents the amazing news. That night, Delphie’s ballet shoes begin to glow and they whisk her away to a magical land called Enchantia.

The author very cleverly models the land of Enchantia from the story of “The Nutcracker and the King of Mice.” Delphie meets the Sugar Plum Fairy who explains that Evil King Rat has captured the Nutcracker. Without the magic of the Nutcracker no one can dance. Together they set off on a journey to save the Nutcracker and restore the magic to the land.

‘The Magic Ballet Shoes’ is the first book in a series which follows Delphie on her ballet adventures. Although the story is fairly straightforward, I feel it is best suited to KS1, although some readers at KS2 would also enjoy this book. It seems to be directed more to girls, so I don’t feel it would work very well in a class lesson, unless used in a P.E lesson on dance forms/body movement. Despite this, I would still encourage children to read this book as it is very enjoyable.

The author uses correct ballet terms such as Plies and Battements tendu. Children may need help with the pronunciation of these words. The author has also included a guide to the basic ballet steps at the back of the book which children may enjoy doing.
