Lucy follows her dream to train to become a professional ballerina and is selected as one of a handful of students to go to the Ballet Academy. Throughout the four years, she gets through the tough and pressured training with the support of teachers and fellow students, performs alongside her idol in The Nutcracker, and then faces the final challenge of getting into the Ballet High School. These 128-page books are perfect for elementary and middle grade students who can read alone confidently. The narrative and dialogue are fictional and read like the novels this age group is just beginning to discover, but the books are filled with nonfiction facts and information about the topic at hand. Interspersed throughout are genre spreads that make this a true DK book. Photographs and illustrations throughout the book engage and interest readers as they access information and develop their reading comprehension skills. Presented in chapters, the books in the DK Adventures series are perfect choices for kids who like to read for pleasure and need to read for class.
