Rosie wants nothing more than to be a ballerina. Can letters from the Sugar Plum Fairy help inspire her? Rosie's a little ballerina who can't dance very well - she can't seem to move without tripping! But when her dance teacher organizes a performance of The Nutcracker, Rosie starts to receive letters of encouragement from the Sugar Plum Fairy. Rosie's tryout doesn't go well, so she's cast as the youngest mouse, but the Sugar Plum Fairy convinces her to keep trying. It's Rosie who saves the day when the lead ballerina gets sick - inspired by the words of her own special fairy! The book contains ten envelopes to open, each with its own special message.When children open the double gatefold on the final spread they'll get a surprise - a silver charm bracelet! Also included is a mini-storybook of The Nutcracker and a glittery padded front cover, which make this the perfect gift for any young ballerina.
