Thea Stilton and the Dancing Shadows

Thea Stilton Book

I like Thea Stilton books because they are filled with mystery and my five favorite mice, the Thea Sisters!  In this story the sisters help their new friend Carlotta, a fabulous dancer win the competition.  But first they have to find out who is behind all the pranks that are in the way of Carlotta winning.
