American Girl's Angelina Ballerina logo.

Angelina Ballerina is a children's book series by author Katharine Holabird and illustrator Helen Craig about a fictional mouse, Angelina Jeanette Mouseling, who is training to become a ballerina. The first book in the series was published in 1983 and there have been over twenty books in the series.

The brand was a product line through American Girl from 2001 to 2004.

As an American Girl Product Line

Holabird and Craig licensed products for Angelina Ballerina through American Girl from 2001 to 2004. This line was targeted at young children ages 3+. The line focused on small jointed-plush dolls, clothes, and accessories as well as the hardback books.

Target acquired the rights to the line's license in Spring 2004, and the American Girl products were retired then. Books continued to be written and are now published by Simon and Schuster; licensed products are available through various markets and brands, including animated TV episodes and toys.
