Ballerinas Don't Wear GlassesBook - 2000
Ben's little sister Allison is a nuisance. He'd rather have a puppy. And today, while Mom is at work, Allison will be more of a nuisance than usual. Ben has to deliver her - along with her swan costume - to her ballet recital on time. It hasn't been a good day for his little sister either. The other girls in her class say that ballerinas aren't clumsy, don't wear pigtails and especially don't wear glasses. To add insult to injury, Allison is left with the biggest, limpest, saggiest swan costume of all. Convinced that she'll be nothing more than an ugly duckling, Allison is close to tears. What's a big brother to do? Ben leaps into action. Big brother will save the day. Scissors and pins, needle and thread - that's all he needs. And hair? No problem. Glasses - who needs 'em? when he gets finished, nobody's going to make fun of his little sister; she'll be the most remarkable swan of all time. A story about siblings and the bond they sometimes reluctantly share, Ballerinas Don't Wear Glasses is a funny and warmhearted tale that will also strike a chord with anyone who has even felt out of place.
