Editorial Reviews

A 2013 Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award Winner Tallulah shines as a real little dancer with her own distinct style, learning step by step." - Kirkus "With expressive, insouciant watercolor illustrations, ballet terms like 'sissone' sprinkled sparingly throughout the text, and the obligatory glitter-heavy jacket art, this is a charming holiday choice." - School Library Journal "As in the previous Tallulah books, Boiger's muted watercolors offer understated elegance, while Singer gingerly addresses how the wisdom of caring adults and role models can bring valuable perspective to a moment of humiliation." - Publishers Weekly "An un-sugar-coated, but humorous, portrayal of life in the theater for young dancers - and an encouraging example for any reader." - The Horn Book Magazine "
