Lucy Dancer is an illustrated story of a young girl finding the jubilation of movement, discipline and community, despite or maybe because she's just a little bit willful.


Praise for Lucy Dancer

"Zimet’s simple yet lyrical text and full-color illustrations that mix line art and paint capture Lucy’s growing love for dance in an authentic voice." Kirkus Reviews

“A must-have book in the library of any kid.” Noel Strazza, dancer and choreographer pabloynoel.com

"The elegant and lyrical lines of the drawings strongly evoke the feel of dancing, (and) the text of the book stands beautifully on its own." 
Sarah Dillard author & illustrator of I Wish It Would Snow! and the Mouse Scouts series.

Lucy Dancer reads like the truth, like Eva lived it. The art is expressive, fun and very moving ... a great tribute to the world of dance, practice and determination. Bravo!
— Phoebe Stone, Parents Choice award-winning author of The Boy on Cinnamon Street and Romeo Blue.
Lucy’s vision of life as a dance will keep you hooked until the end. For her emotion, experiences, and relationships are no other than opportunities for movement and joy. This is something we could all use in our everyday lives
— Tomás Howlin, Argentine tango master, worldwide.
