KIRKUS REVIEW

Orphaned, impoverished, little Paquita has two intense enthusiasms which make her life in Mallorca seem less monotonous --her love of a donkey and her fondness of dancing. But when she sees the royal ballerinas dance in the village square she resolves never to dance again until she can match their skill. How Paquita fulfills this dream, how her donkey indirectly helps her, and the warm friendship she forms over the years with two Spanish boys, one exceedingly rich and one a shoeshine boy, make up a pleasant romantic base for a travelogue of the Baleares and Valencia.
