This is book number 3 in the Ballet Cat series.


Everyone's favorite feline dance diva faces stiff competition in this hilarious third book in the popular Ballet Cat series for early readers!

Ballet Cat and her cousin Goat are preparing a show for Grandma. Each is trying to outdo the other—Ballet Cat with an elaborate dance routine (of course), and Goat with his amazing (amazingly pathetic, that is) magic tricks. Neither act goes off quite as planned, but it doesn't matter... because Grandma falls asleep during the performance! Oh well, at least Ballet Cat and Goat learn how to cooperate. (But Ballet Cat cooperates better!)

Praise For…


*"Tapping into the same barely restrained exuberance and visual energy that characterizes much of his previous work, Shea introduces Ballet Cat, a pearls-and-tutu-wearing feline who loves to dance as much as the author's Dinosaur and Cheetah characters love winning. Like Mo Willems's Elephant and Piggie, these two are a contemporary comic duo with staying power; Shea mines Ballet Cat's dialed-up enthusiasm and Sparkles's hangdog expressions for everything they are worth. Boldly contrasting backgrounds heighten the strong emotions at play and, luckily, after Sparkles reveals his 'secret secret' about dancing, this friendship is undiminished."
Publishers Weekly (starred review)


*"This early reader has simple, vivacious cartoon artwork done in inks with digital enhancements. Shea's signature style and bright bold colors add to the fun. Although the text is somewhat sophisticated and the dialogue is entirely in word balloons, the humor and theme of friendship and sharing will have broad appeal beyond the beginning reader set. VERDICT Move over Elephant and Piggie!"
