The Tale of the Cat and the Ballet Mouse (Hardcover)
by Anne Krohley

Mimette is a mouse of culture. Born in the iconic Metropolitan Opera House in New York City, she has learned to love the opera and the ballet. In fact, her love of the ballet has grown so much that she starts studying with the professional ballerinas.

But even when Mimette transforms into a beautiful dancer, her ability to dance does not stop the other performers’ fearful reactions when they see her unexpectedly on stage. After many mishaps during live performances, the management of the opera house decide to send for Hobart, the most famous mouse catcher in the world. Will Mimette find a way to escape his net and continue her ballet career?

The Tale of the Cat and the Ballet Mouse is a timeless story of how a love of dance and perseverance can overcome adversity and allow dreams to come true.

In classic or contemporary ballet, dancing may tell a story, express a mood, or simply reflect the music in movement. Ballet as part of staged performances originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th and 16th centuries and from there spread to France. The creation of classical ballet as we know it today occurred during the reign of the art-loving French king Louis XIV in the mid-17th century. During the Romantic era, ballet technique evolved to express new ideas, most notably with women dancing en point, or on their toes, allowing them to appear weightless and otherworldly.
Among the choreographers who helped bring ballet into the modern age by exploring new visual and dramatic styles are George Balanchine, Antony Tudor and—bridging the worlds of classical dance and Broadway—Agnes de Mille and Jerome Robbins.
