Darcey and HarperCollins have created the Magic Ballerina series in collaboration, working alongside an experienced author. Darcey was inspired by her two young daughters, and wanted to recreate something of the magic of theatre:
"A lot of the adventures are based on my childrens experiences watching me dance and seeing someone transform themselves through the magic of the theatre."

With dazzling adventures, new dance steps to learn and a companion website with games, puzzles and competitions, this sparkly series is sure to excite and inspire little girls everywhere! Darcey Bussell
is a world-famous ballerina with a huge fan base among adults and children alike. A great role model, her dedication and hard work have allowed her to enjoy an incredibly successful career, and will encourage young readers to strive to achieve their own dreams. Darcey joined the Royal Ballet School when she was 13 and, despite starting later than most of the other students, became a Principal of the Royal Ballet at just 19, at the time the youngest ballerina ever to be given this honour. She received both the OBE and CBE awards during her time with the Royal Ballet, and since officially retiring in 2007 she has teamed up with Katherine Jenkins in the phenomenally successful Viva la Diva. She is married with two young daughters and splits her time between London and Australia.
