Princess Brianna Bright loves ballet and fencing, but she isn't very good at either--until thieves steal jewels from the castle, and Brianna combines ballet moves with fencing to save the day. Calvert cleverly points out similarities between ballet and fencing in this tale of girl power. Hee's digital illustrations are slick and twee but capture the strength and grace of Brianna's movements. Glos. Copyright 2018 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
“Hee’s brightly colored digital illustrations feature a pale-skinned, beribboned Brianna with a perfectly coifed black ponytail and big black eyes. Descriptive words and verbs are emphasized in differently colored
type, usually pink.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Hee’s soft, colorful illustrations have a sunny Disney vibe, and the general tone makes it appropriate for story time—this is not strictly a princess book! Calvert introduces plenty of ballet and fencing terminology
along the way and even includes a glossary.” —Booklist
