The illustrations are the real star here, though Battle's journey is well-articulated and inspiring. But the way Ransome captures Battle's movements with his pencil sketches is nothing short of stunning. The end papers alone are worth pouring over. A solid enough narrative that should inspire budding dancers made exceptional by Ransome's drawings.
