It seemed cruel to me that all of Lucie's classmates, even her f I was concerned about how much weight was a factor in this book.

African Folk Dance Fever (Dance Class Graphic Novels Series #3)

It seemed cruel to me that all of Lucie's classmates, even her friends, gave her a hard time about eating sweets. There were other odd things about the book, such as Carla's mom assuming that the girls were drunk when actually they had done multiple pirouettes. It is unfortunate that this book has so many negative stereotypes about weight. Those messages could be really harmful for girls reading the story.

If only the book could have focused more on the amazing, awesome power of dance. Jun 28, Amanda rated it did not like it. I picked this up because I have a 10 year old sis who dances. I read it to see if maybe it was something that she would like. Then I got hypercritical and am not interested in sharing it with her.

I have never been in a competitive dance culture, but I know a few stories. I don't know if this book is collecting stereotypes but I think that some of them are harmful. For example, a new bakery opens up across the street from the studio where the girls spend a lot of time. One girl decides to "indul I picked this up because I have a 10 year old sis who dances.

One girl decides to "indulge" by getting a piece of chocolate cake. The dance bar subsequently breaks at her next rehearsal. She then decides to never eat a piece of chocolate cake after that. There are three main characters and one of them is chubbier, as in And the other girls spend a considerable amount of time talking about it, even though the chubbier girl Lucie doesn't seem to care. But really.

Too much diet culture reference for teens. Like a ten 12 year old should not be using the language "I will indulge by having a piece of chocolate cake this one time. Not healthy right? Some of the scenes are benign, and some of the scenes are crumbs. There is one scene that features a dance mom. The girls are practicing spins and come rolling out of class very dizzy and drunk looking. The mother confronts her daughter with, "I would expect this from some of your lower class friends, but not you. I don't really get what they are trying to do here.

I'm thankful that the other Goodreads reviews pointed out the body shaming in this comic so I didn't have to. It's not as often as it used to be to see a character who's only character trait is to not only revolve around nothing but her weight but to only discuss and think about food. It would be one thing if the joke was that the girls had a restrictive diet to keep being athletic and they wanted to splurge before the rehearsal, but the majority of the jokes revolve around the one girl who isn' I'm thankful that the other Goodreads reviews pointed out the body shaming in this comic so I didn't have to.

It would be one thing if the joke was that the girls had a restrictive diet to keep being athletic and they wanted to splurge before the rehearsal, but the majority of the jokes revolve around the one girl who isn't even overweight, just has an average body type compared to the cartoonishly thin girls.

It's pretty irresponsible given that the audience is young girls, but also dancers who do have to deal with body shaming in real life. It's also obvious that this was written and drawn by two men and one woman, given not only the body type of every female character but how they all have large chests. I also may just be saying this as an American reader, but some of the jokes make me question what age range this is for. Some of the jokes are explained so blatantly that it seems intended for very young children, but then they go to a party and a guy is groping a girl in the background though maybe this could have been a background gag that they thought would go over the kid's heads.

On the positive side, as someone who used to do ballet, a number of the gags were funny. While not every joke landed, the comic has the plotless feel of an Azumanga Daioh or a better full-page newspaper strip. Aside from the body shaming, the art stands when the characters have pretty decent dancer proportions, and overall comic itself is pretty average.

It reads like expanded newspaper comics strips for the most part, I found a lot of them genuinely funny and got a chuckle from a number of pages, and I liked the art style. People are complaining about "body shaming" that does not exist, the slightly rotund girl is shown to be friends with the rest of the group she is not excluded or mocked , they try to stop her overeating fatty food because when she ran one can see she struggles to keep up so has poor cardiovascular ability.

That is Fun comic. That is not shaming people, that is including people of different shapes and colours and putting a story around them rather than just make them extras for the main character.

Sep 21, Kerri Turner rated it really liked it Shelves: books-with-ballet , comic-books-graphic-novels , favourites. As someone who studied dance, got my degree in it, and now teaches it, I was bound to love this comic. For the most part, it was pretty accurate to my own experiences while being able to add an element of humour to it. Someone who knows dance has clearly put their time and research into this!

I liked that people of color were represented fairly well; they had some lines and personalities, anyway, and didn't appear to be a "token" presence. However, I disliked the not-so-subtle digs at the "chubby" girl who, btw, was the only realistically-proportioned member of the group and the scene where the ballet instructor calls the group "ladies" and "girls" despite the continuous presence of Kids who like stories centered around stereotypical "mean girl drama" will like this graphic novel.
