Tallulah's Tutu

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 plie?

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.

"When her teacher explains that a tutu must be earned with time and practice, Tallulah melts down into a tantrum and decides against ballet....Singer understands the girl's unrealistic view of dance and expresses it with considerable sympathy. Even children who don't share Tallulah's ballet dreams may long for such an idyllic world, in which a child's mother, her teacher, and even the strangers she dances past in the grocery store are warmly supportive at all times." -- Carolyn Phelan, Booklist
