    1. Oh, the nostalgia of this book. What I remember most is how much this book upset me. I mean it, it's really depressing right up until the last three pages. And though the ending was happy, it barely made up for how depressing the rest of the book was. I'm not saying it's bad, mind you. The illustrations were beautiful (especially the last page) and I really appreciate the way the author didn't go with the gender roles trope for the personalities of the two human children. I was just a very sensi [...]

    2. A little girl receives the dancing cat as a gift, but mistreats her as she does all her toys. It's not until the little girl gives the cat away that the dancing cat is finally able to achieve her dream of dancing. The little boy who adopts her names her Tasha (because good dancers are Russian) and has his mom make Tasha a dancing costume. Tasha dances to her heart's content and is very happy.

    3. My little girl loves to dance. She loved this book and I really enjoyed it as well. It was a book about realizing your dreams despite obstacles and discouragement. Well written.
