Star Review

Matilda

When Stravinsky met Nijinsky : two artists, their ballet, and one extraordinary riot by Lauren Stringer. Review written by Luke.

This book is about two Russian artists, Stravinsky who is a composer and Nijinsky who is a ballet dancer They meet each other and decide to compose a new type of dance and music using Russian folk dancing. They perform their show in Paris. Is it liked by the audience? I liked this story as it is about real people and is original. I therefore rate it 5 stars (More kids' reviews!)
