Written and beautifully illustrated by my mother, Roslyn Bertram, this is the story of my discovery of ballet.

Roslyn Bertram

I came across this enchanting hand typed manuscript that my Mother had put together. It was after she passed away, while looking through pages of her books and diaries, that I found it. The folder was complete and the sketches still together.


I had always remembered this work, as it stuck out in my mind more than any of her other projects. I’d often mention it to her and she always replied with: –

“Oh it’s not that good really. It was just fun at the time.”

Now I am able to share this book as an example of my mother’s unseen talent, coupled with the story of my own childhood and I hope that not only will you love it, but also you will find within its pages a new inspiration for your own dreams.

I have done my very best to keep the contents as she wrote it and only hope that through my edit I have simply clarified and enhanced her vision.
