Balletball

Coming February 25, 2020. Preorder now!

By: Erin Dionne/ Illustrated by: Gillian Flint

Baseball is nothing like ballet. Or is it?

Nini hates baseball. She hates that baseball is not ballet. She especially hates that Mom signed her up to play and now she's stuck with the sport. Nini just can't bring herself to try. Not even her teammates' disappointment will change her feelings. A pep talk from her coach and some sparkly shoelaces help--a little. When Nini makes a game-winning catch using her ballet moves, she realizes that change might not be so bad after all, and ballet and baseball have more in common than she thought.
