Bad News Ballet is back and, according to John Sexton, ALA's Chair of Quick Picks, the series is "as contemporary and funny as ever!"

Bad News Ballet follows the wacky adventures of five misfit ballerinas from Deerfield, Ohio. Encouraged by their mothers to audition for the Nutcracker ballet, these reluctant dancers band together to battle those snobby ballerinas, the Bunheads. The girls not only learn to like dance, but eventually get their toe shoes.

Known as Scrambled Legs in England and Droles de Danseuses in France, the middle-grade series returns with three more volumes to charm a new generation of readers with witty story lines and sensitive treatment of friendship and self-image.
