Meet Biff, an adorable little puppy who will stop at nothing to become a ballet dancer.
My dog is not like other dogs. He doesn't do dog stuff like weeing on lampposts or scratching his fleas, or drinking out of the toilet. No, my dog likes moonlight and music and walking on his tiptoes. You see, my dog doesn't think he's a dog. My dog thinks he's a ballerina!
A fabulous feel-good book about a small dog with a big personality and even bigger dreams.
