»Polina doesn’t have it easy. Her teacher threw her out of ballet class: “I’m sorry, Polina, but you’re not getting anywhere. You’re just too clumsy,” she said. What she’d really like is to be as light as a butterfly; she dreams of being able to fly.

One day, a circus comes to town. Polina visits the acrobats the very next morning – and experiences the wonder of her lifetime: in a single, brilliant moment clumsy Polina actually becomes Trampolina, who can fly like a butterfly! This is a wonderful story of being different and belonging, of being brave and dreaming and learning to fly.
