Defying the odds, Clorinda the cow follows her dream of becoming
a ballet dancer.
FROM THE PUBLISHER
Life on the farm is everything a cow like Clorinda could want, or
so she thought. Then one Election Day, while up at dawn to travel
to the distant city to cast her annual ballot, Clorinda is confused
by the signs and stumbles into a performance of classical ballet
instead. Bewilderment soon gives way to enchantment and she loses
her heart to the magic of the dance. Clorinda's dream of becoming
a bovine ballerina is set and she's headed for the big-city stage
to start her career. Her mottoes, "Be bold and imaginative!
Shoot for the sky!" Robert Kinerk's witty and spirited verses
combine with Steven Kellogg's effervescent and expansive artwork
to introduce an endearing heroine. Irrepressible Clorinda will inspire
standing ovations and cries of "ENCORE!" from picture-book
readers of all ages.
