Ballet was the 3rd book to be issued in series 662. It was written by Ian Woodward. It is beautifully illustrated by Martin Aitchison. If as a child you badly wanted ballet lessons, like me, this book was as close as you could get and I used the endpapers to try to teach myself the 5 basic ballet positions. If you were lucky enough to have ballet lessons, I expect you were inspired by the Degas-like illustrations of back stage excitement and the dramatic scenes from Swan Lake/
