AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Boris is one mean-looking monster. So mean, in fact, that he can't look at himself in the mirror. Boris's rough exterior acts as a defence, while contributing to his fear. When he is compelled to take up ballet, Boris learns, through the discipline and the dance, that he can connect with others, that he has something to give, and that he can enjoy himself and be happy. This is one monster's journey of self discovery . . .' (Publication summary)
