    This wasn t my favorite Drina book It was actually kind of boring and formulaic not that most kids books AREN T formulaic I should also point out that I m reading this as an adult, so maybe it s not so boring and formulaic to its intended audience The only moderately redeeming part is view spoiler at the end, when it starts to be known that Drina is the famous Elizabeth Ivory s daughter hide spoiler This wasn t my favorite Drina book It was actually kind of boring and formulaic not that most kids books AREN T formulaic I should also point out that I m reading this as an adult, so maybe it s not so boring and formulaic to its intended audience The only moderately redeeming part is view spoiler at the end, when it starts to be known that Drina is the famous Elizabeth Ivory s daughter hide spoiler

    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.

    I ve started working my way through the Drina books over the last month or so I ve owned 2 since I was six or seven, and I think I must have found 1 at a library at some point in my childhood it was very familiar But I d never gotten my hands on the rest of the 11 book series, and I always wondered what exactly happened to everyone.I mean, obviously, Drina grows up to be a wildly successful ballerina I could have told you that even before I learned that book 11 is called Drina Ballerina I ve started working my way through the Drina books over the last month or so I ve owned 2 since I was six or seven, and I think I must have found 1 at a library at some point in my childhood it was very familiar But I d never gotten my hands on the rest of the 11 book series, and I always wondered what exactly happened to everyone.I mean, obviously, Drina grows up to be a wildly successful ballerina I could have told you that even before I learned that book 11 is called Drina Ballerina I am positive that sooner or later, she will dance all the famous roles she dreams of But beyond that.Now of course, things likeexist, making it easy to collect cheap used books on a whim Bwahahaha And I m enjoying them very much, in a soothing kind of way In many ways, they aren t terribly good although we mainly follow Drina, the narrative jumps heads whenever it s convenient to insert someone else s reaction There s a lot of telling rather than showing And there s a certain degree of formula Drina is forced into an unfamiliar setting and it is the WORST THING EVER Drina gradually adjusts Drina finds a friend and life gets better Drina gets all the exciting opportunities and the mean girls are nasty about it Drina is humble although her friends insist that she s brilliantly talented and has a bright future.And yet, it s all charming Drina s anxieties are easy to empathize with She s loyal to her friends, and sticks up for classmates who are less fortunate than she is She s dedicated and determined and insistent that she ll succeed on her own terms, not because she has a famous though deceased ballerina for a mother In short, she s likable, and the whole exercise feels like reconnecting with an old friend and being pleased for her success.But that s why I haven t been rating them these are sweet and pleasant, but often obvious They re excellent for little girls who love ballet, but not staples of children s literature

    I always find myself waffling between the first book and this one, but I think this might be my favorite of the original five Part of it is simply the way the book flows from one section to the other Drina the actress to Drina to dancer but I also feel like the character grows the most in this volume I think it might also be the fact that I can picture her experiencesclearly, since she spends so much time dancing in The Nutcracker, which is the only ballet I ve actually seen live I always find myself waffling between the first book and this one, but I think this might be my favorite of the original five Part of it is simply the way the book flows from one section to the other Drina the actress to Drina to dancer but I also feel like the character grows the most in this volume I think it might also be the fact that I can picture her experiencesclearly, since she spends so much time dancing in The Nutcracker, which is the only ballet I ve actually seen live The ending, when some major truths come to light, never ceases to make me smile Drina s life is finally REALLY moving forward, and it s lovely.For 10 years, I thought this was the end of the series, and while it certainly does wrap up a lot of major plot lines, I distinctly remember feeling rather unfulfilled There was nothing truly concrete about the conclusion, and so smaller plot threads were left dangling But that still didn t stop me from loving the series, and reading it over and over again clearly

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Drina returns from Italy to dance at the Dominick once , but is sidelined with an injury She is offered a significant part in the James Barrie play, _Dear Brutus_, and big surprise discovers she has a talent for acting Eventually she is able to return to her first love and play Clara at the Edinburgh festival I love most of the books in this series I think it is the best ballet series written for children remembering that the inimitable _Ballet Shoes_ was not really part of a serie Drina returns from Italy to dance at the Dominick once , but is sidelined with an injury She is offered a significant part in the James Barrie play, _Dear Brutus_, and big surprise discovers she has a talent for acting Eventually she is able to return to her first love and play Clara at the Edinburgh festival I love most of the books in this series I think it is the best ballet series written for children remembering that the inimitable _Ballet Shoes_ was not really part of a series However this offering is less plausible than some of the others Are we expected to believe that Drina can do _anything_ Still, another lovely offering from this prolific she s Mable Esther Allan, after all author

    Another of my most beloved from this series I love ballet stories, and love stage stories and this one takes my beloved Drina ballerina and puts her on the West End, in a straight play Totally awesome.

    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.


  8. Kate Kate says:

    I thought there were only 5 books in this series, but looking at the search results, it appears that Drina went on to dance in a number of other countries for about 6books

    Oh how I love going back to this It s probably a little immature of me but sometimes I really need this world of Drina s where every accident is a blessing in disguise This book will always be special because of the Nutcracker.
