Summary
Despite her size and not having the proper footwear, a determined dinosaur pursues her dream of becoming a ballerina
Summary
Brontorina the Apatosaurus is a ballerina at heart, but she is (as instructor Madame Lucille points out) "rather large" and does not have the proper shoes. Nevertheless, Madame Lucille admits Brontorina into her Dance Academy for Girls and Boys -- which, by the end of this warmly funny and inspiringly inclusive tale, has suffered a number of holes in its ceiling and gets moved to a ranch and renamed Madame Lucille's Outdoor Dance Academy for Girls and Boys and Dinosaurs (and Cows). -- Description by Ellen Foreman
