Alumna Rhiannon Wallace presents her new book ‘Leopold’s Leotard’

MASLIS alumna and author Rhiannon Wallace has recently published her first picture book titled ‘Leopold’s Leotard‘. Illustrated by Vancouver-based artist Risa Hugo, Rhiannon’s new picture book tells the story of a boy who loves to dance. When his dance teacher announces the year-end recital, Leopold hopes he will get to be a graceful bird. But Miss Linda says the dancers are going to be bees. When the big night comes around, the combination of stage fright and an uncomfortable costume are too much for Leopold. Will he find a way to overcome his fear and disappointment to show off his passion for dance?
