Preview: Dance Class, vol. 4: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Paris
Let’s kick off our Tuesday with a preview of Dance Class vol. 4: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Paris. You don’t have to have read the earlier volumes to get the idea: It’s a lively slice-of-life story about three friends who are in dance class together. In this volume, they are training for the National Ballet Competition in Paris (the books are translated from the French) and will have to face various obstacles, including a Mean Girl, on their way. Enjoy!
