"Lili will capture the dreams of countless balletomanes as she arrives at the theater to prepare for her debut as a party guest in The Nutcracker. "The atmosphere crackles and the book delivers as much enchantment as the ballet itself." -- "Kirkus Reviews" (pointer review) "Text and art concentrate on the accomplished young dancers' behind-the-scenes activities -- stretching, making up, dressing, rehearsing, and waiting to go on....This romantic offering will fire the imaginations of children looking forward to the Nutcracker experience." -- "School Library Journal"
