The third book of the award-winning and bestselling Sugar Plum Ballerinas series by Whoopi Goldberg—now featuring brand-new illustrations!

At the Nutcracker School of Ballet in Harlem, young dancers learn to chassé, plié, and jeté with their Sugar Plum Sisters—but things don't always go to plan! As the girls encounter challenges both on and off stage, they'll need the support of their classmates to carry them through with aplomb.

Perfectionistic Jerzey Mae desperately wants to be a ballet dancer. But she's frustrated by her own lack of talent--and by her friends' jokes about her terrible dancing. Things get even worse when her little brother Mason attends her ballet class, totally embarrassing Jerzey in front of her prima ballerina idol, Miss Camilla Freeman. When Jerzey learns that Miss Camilla will be attending their recital, she's determined not to make a fool of herself again. But her efforts to learn her dance are continually thwarted--until she finds help in a very unexpected place.
Whoopi Goldberg is the author of the Sugar Plum Ballerinas books. She has won a Tony, an Emmy, an Oscar, and a Grammy, as well as two Golden Globes. In 2001, she was awarded the prestigious Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. Whoopi Goldberg has appeared in scores of films and in all media.

Deborah Underwood is the author of numerous picture books, including Finding Kindness, Interstellar Cinderella, Part-time Princess, and the New York Times Best Sellers Here Comes the Easter Cat, The Quiet Book, and The Loud Book! Her ballet career was cut short by a tragic lack of talent, but she can sing a mean aria and knows four ukulele chords. Please visit Deborah online at DeborahUnderwoodBooks.com.

Ashley Evans loves creating colorful, fun, and dynamic art. Born and raised in Queens, she now lives in Charlotte, NC with her boyfriend and their daughter. When she’s not creating art you can find her decorating cakes, enjoying her family or catching a much needed nap!
