Full-Text Reviews
Horn Book Guide (Spring 2001)
Taller than everyone else in her class, Sassy has big feet and sometimes a big mouth. All that does not stop her from wanting to be a ballet dancer, and her persistence is rewarded when she is chosen for a special summer dance program. Allen's dialogue is realistic, and Nelson's illustrations of the predominantly African-American cast ably capture Sassy's love of dance and her lively personality.
