Description

Tallulah just knew she could be a great ballerina, if only she had a tutu. So she starts ballet class. When she does not receive a tutu, she quits. But everywhere she goes, things keep reminding her of ballet. Her neighbor's basset hound always stands in second position. The kitchen clock performs perfect ronds de jambe. And Tallulah can't seem to stop doing ballet, either. A park bench makes a perfect barre, and what better way to pet the dog than with a graceful plié? This well-told, funny story with a smart new character will satisfy girls' cravings for pretty and pink, but also shows that ballet is about more than just the tutu.

Review quote

This endearing story teaches children the value of earning something and that the joy of the journey can be just as sweet as the reward....The muted, rosy illustrations create a soft mood and complement the tone of the story beautifully.--School Library Journal Without preaching, [Marilyn Singer and Alexandra Boiger] score some important points about the value of patience, persistence, and the pursuit of perfection.--Publishers Weekly A nice addition to the recently growing collection of ballet-themed books. --Booklist The glittery pink cover and endpaper spreads of the five ballet positions are appealing, and Singer weaves the language of ballet throughout her story.--Kirkus Reviews
