Description

I'm wearing a glittering tutu and a sparkling tiara.
I pirouette. Three times.
And I don't even trip.
My name's Charlotte, but you can call me Lottie. I'm a ballerina.
At least, that's my thing this week.
Charlotte Perkins is seven years old and can't wait to grow up - if only she could decide what she wanted to be!
Luckily, no dream is too big for little Lottie Perkins!


Review

Lottie Perkins is a an exceptional child - just ask her! But although Lottie thinks she is exceptional, not everyone else does. Lottie has a knack for trouble...


She has big dreams and big ideas, and this week her dream is to be a ballerina! Lottie wants to star in the ballerina role in Swan Lake at the local Bella Ballet Company. But the nasty Harper Dark, in her perfect tutu, has her sights set on this role too. What is Lottie to do?
