Enter the mind of spunky and precocious six-year-old Lilly Nilly. As a dance student, her self-appointed mission is to figure out what the heck ballet –– and coincidentally life –– are all about and share this insight with other kids.
Young girls will find Lilly’s stories funny and very relatable, especially if they are ballet students themselves. Adults will find her sharp wit and strong-willed spirit a charming reminder of just how empowering a joyful approach to life can be.
