Princess Poppy: Ballet Dreams

Princess Poppy: Ballet Dreams

Summary

Poppy and Honey are thrilled when Madam Angelwing starts advanced ballet classes. At first, Poppy loves the extra lessons, but soon gives them up when she begins to feel that ballet is taking over her life. Honey decides to stick with the classes as Madam has told her she's good enough to be a professional ballerina when she grows up.

Now, when Honey isn't at dance class she's either practicing ballet or reading about it - she just doesn't have any time for Poppy anymore.

Will Honey's ballet dreams come true? And will things ever be the same between Poppy and Honey?

About the authors

Janey Louise Jones

Janey was born in Edinburgh and grew up by the seaside just outside the city. Janey published the first two Princess Poppy books herself (with her own illustrations) and the books were so popular that Random House Children's Books soon bought the series and re-packaged the books. The series is now going from strength to strength, including picture books, activity books and sumptuous gift books. Janey has also written novels for young readers and the Princess Poppy Cookbook all of which have been very successful.

Janey read English at Edinburgh University specializing in the Victorian novel. Following this she became a teacher - a career that she absolutely adored - and then, with her husband, set up The Jelly Club, which has become an extremely successful chain of children's activity centres in Scotland. She still very much enjoys visiting schools and talking to children to find out what they like doing and what makes them laugh. Janey lives in Edinburgh with their three sons.
