Meet Katy -- a feisty ballerina-in-the-making who loves to twirl like a leaf, stretch like a flower, and float like a swan. She's all dance, all the time -- until she faces the fear of dancing in front of everyone in her new ballet class at Mr. Tutu's School of Dance! Suddenly the once-bold Katy is overcome with a bad case of stage fright! What's a duck to do?
Kids will relate to this fun, charming story about the shyness that can grip all of us at times...and our inner star that refuses to be denied!
