Foreword Reviews

An Unlikely Ballerina

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.
