Biff is not your usual dog. He refuses to do dog stuff like fetch, chase the ball, and wee on fire hydrants. What Biff really enjoys is listening to music and walking on his tiptoes. That's right, 'walking on his tiptoes'!

Obviously, Biff doesn't realize he is a dog. When his owner goes off to her ballet class on Saturday, guess who tries to go along? And, when the little girl attends a ballet performance, someone dear to her insists on going along.

Then the unthinkable happens. A certain little black and white dog sneaks into the theater and before you can say pirouette, guess who sneaks out on stage in his pink tutu?

Not only does he receive a standing ovation and plenty of bravos, but Biff also proves, once and for all, that some dogs, indeed, can do ballet!

A silly but endearing story about an irrepressible little dog who insists on following his dream, this picture book will have pre-schoolers dancing all over the house after they read about Biff.
