Vampirina Ballerina works on two levels -- as a cute story about learning ballet and as a fish-out-of water tale, in which an unusual girl learns how to fit into a mainstream setting. Many of the gags depend on knowing some vampire basics -- why Vampirina's reflection doesn't show in the dance studio mirror, why she has to take night classes, what's in the family's red bowls at dinnertime, why her mother is lying on a lounge chair working on her moon tan. LeUen Pham's funny, expressive, cartoon-like illustrations make Vampirina irresistible.
