About the Book

"This is like Harry Potter, but for girls."

"The jig reminds me of the dancing in the Titanic movie!"

"I thought the combination of a story, the dance and a video was wonderful, as well as educational!"

Sara Charm's serendipitous adventures are a modern-day fairytale! Wearing magical dance slippers she travels back into time and uncovers the mystery of her Great Grandma, Katie O'Charm, an Irish fairy. Sara's shoes whisk her back to 1925 Ireland, 1910 Russia and 1955 Cuba.
Wearing Irish Jig shoes she performs an Irish Step dance to her Papa's fiddling in the village pub. Tying on ballet slippers transforms her into the prima ballerina in the Russian Folk Tales drama. Clicking the heels of a pair of Latin pumps she feels her body swaying to the rhythms of a tango tune dancing Flamenco.
Discovering that she is a fairy is only half of her story. It is only half of yours too! Order the unique instructional dance video and you too can learn to dance! Meet Sara! She will show you how step by step. It's fun and exciting! Order at
