"Clair-De-Lune" is a charming, melancholy little story about a young girl who cannot speak and a mouse who can. Golds' writing is probably a bit too precious, and she skirts the fantasy elements in odd ways sometimes, but one can't help being drawn to her characters. French vocabulary and ballet terms are peppered throughout the text without much explanation, but never seem intrusive. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 044042089X, Paperback)

Clair-de-Lune lives with her grandmother in the tippy-top of a peculiar old building. Every day she practices ballet, just like her mother before her—the famous ballerina who died when Clair-de-Lune was just a baby. Since that day, Clair-de-Lune hasn’t uttered a word.
Then one day the girl who cannot speak meets a remarkable mouse who can. Bonaventure dreams of founding a dancing school just for mice—but he dreams of helping his new friend, too. Soon the brave little mouse introduces Clair-de-Lune to a hidden world inside, and yet somehow beyond, her building—a world that slowly begins to open her heart. Maybe one day her dreams will come true, too.

From the Hardcover edition.
