Title: Ballet Cat: The Totally Secret Secret

Author & Illustrator: Bob Shea

Publisher: Disney Hyperion

Summary: It looks like Ballet Cat only loves one thing… ballet. But when her best friend Sparkles confesses a secret secret (sometimes he doesn’t want to play ballet) he’s afraid Ballet Cat won’t be his friend any more. Ballet Cat shares her own secret… she loves Sparkles more than ballet!

Literary Merit: A lovely lesson about being a good friend and doing things that someone else may enjoy wrapped up in a simple story without being preachy.
