192 pp, 8vo (8" H). Pictorial endpapers, b&w frontispiece plus 7 additional full page b&w illustrations. The 9th 'Sadler's Wells" book. "Fazia, the eighteen-year-old Crown Princess of Slavonia, is one of the most brilliant students at the British Royal Ballet School. In spite of this, however, she doesn't really want to dance. She wants to be just an ordinary girl and do ordinary things - for instance riding in buses and tramcars, and climbing mountains. But royal princesses (even of a pocket handkerchief country like Slavonia) are not ordinary people, and so - . But to find out what happens, you must read the book. In it you will meet many old friends - Rosanna Corelli, who is now in the Royal Ballet Company; Ella Rosetti, Timothy Roebottom, the Weybridges (and their objectionable children, Monica and Cyril) and many others. You will also hear about Ella's love story, and how it ended happily after all."
