The idea behind Wanda's Better Way is a great, innovative one, but Laura Pedersen's story starts in a rather clunky and confusing way.

We are placed right into the book with no explanation of who the characters are, or why Wanda would rather reorganize the dressing room than go to dance class.

The following two vignettes make more sense as there is a little more explanation behind the characters and situations, but the rocky start really throws off the enjoyment.

Penny Weber's illustrations, though, are realistic, and help show Wanda's thoughts, in the process, saving the story.
