A Fuse#8 Production
GIANT DANCE PARTY by Betsy Bird with illustrations by Brandon Dorman. Greenwillow, 2013.
Betsy Bird is probably better known for her blogs and writings about books. But here is her debut picture book: Giant Dance Party. Lexy decides to quit dance even though she loves it and is quite good at dancing, too. Lexy's trouble comes when she steps onto the stage for a program and freezes (like an ice pop). Instead, she will offer lessons to others. That way she can stay connected to dance without the terrible stage fright business or so she thinks. A group of giants (big, blue, fuzzy giants who want to learn how to dance) might just change her mind.
