Budding young ballerinas can join Delphie and Rosa as they discover the magic ballet shoes for the very first time, in this bind-up of the stories that introduced each of these ballerinas
Delphie's greatest dream is to become a ballerina, and she can't quite believe it when she is invited to join the new ballet school. But there is more to Madame Zarakova's than it at first seems, and with the help of some very special ballet shoes, Delphie finds herself spinning into a whole new world. In the second story, Rosa knows that her new red ballet shoes are special, but she soon discovers that they are magical when she is whirled into Enchantia! On her very first adventure, can Rosa free the swan princess from King Rat's curse?

About the author (2008)

Darcey Bussell joined the Royal Ballet School when she was 13 and, despite starting later than most of the other students, became a Principal of the Royal Ballet at just 19, at the time the youngest ballerina ever to be given this honour. Darcey received both the OBE and CBE awards during her time with the Royal Ballet, and since officially retiring in 2007 she has teamed up with Katherine Jenkins in the phenomenally successful 'Viva la Diva'. In 2012 she joined the judging panel of the BBC's 'Strictly Come Dancing'. She is married with two daughters.
