Doris dances to her own tune in this whimsical and emotionally resonant tale about finding the courage to be yourself.

Doris has always reveled in the warmth of a spotlight.

Her whole life, she’s danced the nights away,

With friends from the only home she’s ever known.

But one day, Doris twirls…

Out

Of

Step

…Until she stumbles across a whole new kind of spotlight.

This gorgeous tale by award winning picture book creator Sarah Jacoby, filled with breathtaking art, is a classic in the making, reminiscent of favorites such as Ferdinand and Peter Rabbit. It will surely melt your heart and might even make you want to dance in the moonlight!

Sarah Jacoby is the award-winning author and illustrator of such picture books as Can I Sit With You? and Forever Or a Day, about which the New York Times wrote, "Her soft illustrations, in lovely sunrise, sunset and moonlight colors, capture both wide-open spaces and the enduring bonds of family love.” Sarah often thinks about colors and light as she dances in her little row home in Philadelphia.
