Cloudberry Castle, Ballerina Dreams

This is the third book of Katie Mackenzie’s ballet adventures at Cloudberry Castle.

Katie is becoming more comfortable with the idea of being a boarder at her mother’s ballet school, but misses her old school friends, particularly Mallie.  She decides to see what her old friend is up to and is thrilled when she is asked to help training Mallie’s new unruly pony, Mickey.

Unfortunately this clashes with Katie’s ballet exams and the chance to audition for a role in the New York City Ballet’s tour of The Nutcracker. Her mother’s old ballet company and her favourite ballet vie with her other loves and she has to balance the two. And how will she feel if one of her friends is picked ahead of her?

Again, Janey Louise Jones provides an easy to read story for young girls. Horses and ballet, what more could you want?
