The course of Lily’s fu­ture is for­ever al­tered when she is given a choice be­tween wear­ing an iron brace or at­tend­ing dance les­sons to strengthen her weak legs and turned-out feet in this in­spi­ra­tional true story. Whim­si­cally grace­ful art­work cap­tures the magic of Alicia Markova’s trans­for­ma­tion from a young girl who has trou­ble walk­ing into an in­ter­na­tion­ally ac­claimed prima bal­le­rina grac­ing stages from her back­yard in London to New York and Tel Aviv.

Il­lus­tra­tion by Co­sei Kawa from An Un­likely Bal­le­rina, writ­ten by Krystyna Po­ray Goddu. Reprinted by per­mis­sion of Kar-ben Pub­lish­ing. www.kar­ben.com .
