Matilda was a little bunny who lived in a cozy burrow with her mother, her father, and her brothers and sisters--her many, many brothers and sisters...Matilda often finds herself lost in the middle of her large bunny family. But when Matilda's mother signs her up for bunny ballet, she feels she has finally found a place to shine-if she can get her family to notice, that is...Matilda in the Middle celebrates the joys--and trials--of being a middle child in a heartfelt story that shows that sometimes the middle is the very best place to be. With a style reminiscent of classic favorites like Beatrix Potter, Matilda in the Middle is the perfect package for any young readers who adore bunnies, ballet, or both!
A sweet, timeless picture book about an adorable little ballerina bunny who feels overlooked until the day of her big ballet recital.
