It's Christmastime, and Tallulah finally gets what she's been wishing for -- a part in a real ballet, a professional production of The Nutcracker. She's only a mouse, but she works as hard as if she had been cast as the Sugar Plum Fairy.
On the night of the show, everything is perfect. But then disaster strikes! Does Tallulah have what it takes to become a real ballerina?
A well-told story, gorgeous illustrations, and a beloved character conspire to make a positively magical Christmas book.

"[Tallulah's] debut brings her down to earth...after she steps on another mouse’s tail and causes a pileup of mice and soldiers. Poetic justice has its moment, but the story doesn’t end there. It takes an unexpected turn after the performance in a tender, yet amusing backstage scene in which experienced dancers reminisce about their own embarrassing moments onstage." -- Carolyn Phelan
