Being new to ballet, Misty doesn't know the story of Coppélia, but finds herself enthralled as her teacher weaves the tale. After hearing the story, Misty is more than excited to perform it for her first recital. When she gets casted as a main lead, she's ready to put her heart into it and make her mama proud. She looks to her friends for help and follows their lead until it's time to put all she's learned to the test.

Even though this is Misty's first class, she nails every move, almost as if she has a natural talent for ballet. The illustrations are stunning with a darker toned color scheme and attention to detail. BUNHEADS is inspiring for young dancers and teaches about how hard work leads to great outcomes. It's Misty Copeland's own story from when she was younger and faced the intimidating stage of ballet for the first time. My daughter enjoyed the magical feel of this story and the tale in the beginning gives it a bit more character to stand out from other ballet books.

Final Verdict: BUNHEADS is the perfect story for young ballerinas with a love for dance. It's like having two stories in one with the tale of Coppélia and of Misty's recital.
