Kiki Dances

This book was one of my favourites growing up, i always wondered why Kiki had pink hair, and wanted it myself. The liner pages have beautiful illustrations of ballet positions and the story is written and illustrated by Charlotte Steiner. This copy is an ex kindergarden edition, and the book was first printed in 1949, this is a 1959 version. The font on the cover reminds me of the title text of the film "The Red Shoes"
