    I had not read the Drina books since I was a child and I recently re read them all I read the first 5 as a child and then as a teen I hunted down the final 6 once I realized they existed I am happy to say that for the most part they hold up to the test of time They are very much in the style of British school stories but I quite like those I think the whole series is definitely worth the effort it takes to hunt them down.

    This book takes us back to the level of the first two, in my opinion Not only is Drina back to her normal self except for maybe a chapter and a half of undue wallowing but it also introduces two new characters I love Ilonka and Igor Ilonka is a refugee from a fictional country under Soviet rule behind the old Iron Curtain, which creates the only semi political sub plot in the entire series Igor is the son of the director of Drina s ballet school, and the company into which she hopes to This book takes us back to the level of the first two, in my opinion Not only is Drina back to her normal self except for maybe a chapter and a half of undue wallowing but it also introduces two new characters I love Ilonka and Igor Ilonka is a refugee from a fictional country under Soviet rule behind the old Iron Curtain, which creates the only semi political sub plot in the entire series Igor is the son of the director of Drina s ballet school, and the company into which she hopes to be accepted I didn t quite understand my attraction to this character when I first read the series, but being older it s obvious that I was hoping he d become a romantic interest for Drina This book also marks the first introduction of Drina s Italian relations, and watching her discover a heritage that had been completely hidden from her was very satisfying

    Don t be fooled Other versions of the book are titled Drina Dances in Italy and the synopsis on the back of the U.S Scholastic edition says Drina saves the day by filling in when some members of the Dominick Company become ill while in Italy In reality, though, that doesn t happen until the final 20 pages of the book, and it only lasts about 2 pages False advertising but I m sure the intended audience wouldn t feel as duped as I did PAs someone who is WAY older than the target audience Don t be fooled Other versions of the book are titled Drina Dances in Italy and the synopsis on the back of the U.S Scholastic edition says Drina saves the day by filling in when some members of the Dominick Company become ill while in Italy In reality, though, that doesn t happen until the final 20 pages of the book, and it only lasts about 2 pages False advertising but I m sure the intended audience wouldn t feel as duped as I did PAs someone who is WAY older than the target audience, I feel like the Drina books get weaker as they go Maybe the young kids like book 4 as much as book 1, but I m at the point where I don t feel like the later books live up to the promise of the first book

    One of my least favourites, though I enjoyed itthan Drina Ballerina Not sure exactly why I didn t love it as much as the others Although there is every chance it was entirely because the cover picture of Drina on the edition I first read was kind of ugly See One of my least favourites, though I enjoyed itthan Drina Ballerina Not sure exactly why I didn t love it as much as the others Although there is every chance it was entirely because the cover picture of Drina on the edition I first read was kind of ugly See

    I have the UK version, which is called Drina Dances in Italy Only the second half of the book actually takes place in Italy Drina travels there to meet her Italian family and has the chance to dance with the Dominick Ballet when a few members of the corps de ballet are ill.It s a nice little book I love the style of writing, but it is unbelievable that Drina, after learning Italian for about a month, is almost fluent after a week in Italy.

    The fourth book in the series about born dancer Drina Adams also called Drina Dances in Italy Drina gets to travel with the Dominick school to Italy, where she is thrilled to meet her _other_ grandmother, in Milan She meets and makes friends with Igor Dominick, at least as much as the supercilious Dominick heir allows As always, the ballet background has the ring of authenticity ballet lovers will enjoy it.

    I loved this series when I was younger, and when I had the chance to get some of these books through bookcrossing, I couldn t resist.
