On her journey she meets Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledum and Tweedledee and the White Knight as well as her own dinner.

Harriet Johnson has been sick, and her doctor recommends taking up ice skating to build up strength in her legs. At the ice rink, Harriet meets Lalla Ward. Harriet has three brothers - Alec, Toby and Edward - and they live with their parent over the shop owned by Mr Johnson. The only reason they can afford for Harriet to skate is that the doctor has arranged for her to get free entry to the rink, and Alec pays for hire of skating boots by doing a paper run. Lalla lives with her wealthy Aunt Claudia and Uncle David, as her parents are dead - they drowned when her father, a champion skater, took her mother skating on thin ice. Aunt Claudia is determined that Lalla will become a champion like her father. She is looked after by Nana, has lessons with a governess, Miss Goldthorpe ("Goldie"), and as well as daily skating lessons, she learns ballet and fencing. Harriet and Lalla soon become best friends, as Lalla teaches Harriet to skate. However, Lalla's training does not leave her much free time to see Harriet away from the rink. However, this changes when Goldie and Uncle David decide it would be good for her if Harriet was able to share her lessons. Before long, Harriet is not only doing schoolwork with Lalla - she is also joining in ballet and fencing ... and she, too, is learning to skate well.
Giles Andreae - Giraffes Can't Dance
All the jungle's got the beat, but Gerald the giraffe has four left feet. Such is the dilemma in this British team's bouncy if didactic picture book about self-esteem. As a multitude of fleet-footed beasts eagerly "skip and prance" at the annual Jungle Dance in Africa, Gerald feels sad "because when it comes to dancing/ he was really very bad." Jeered by waltzing warthogs and cha-cha-ing chimps when he attempts to cut a rug, Gerald hangs his head and leaves the celebration behind. Luckily, a friendly cricket appears in the moonlight, chirping a morale-boosting song of self-confidence that soon sets Gerald in graceful motion. Andreae's rhyming text has a jaunty rhythm that's likely to spark interest in the read-aloud crowd, in spite of a heavy-handed message. Parker-Rees's kicky depictions of slightly anthropomorphic animals boogying on the dance floor are the highlight here. His watercolor and pen-and-ink artwork exudes a fun, party vibe. Ages 3-6.
