Ta-da! Tallulah, now in paperback, pirouettes her way into the hearts of budding ballerinas!Tallulah just knows she could be a great ballerina - if only she had a tutu. She signs up for ballet class with great anticipation, only to be disappointed when tutus aren't handed out. When she learns that one must earn a tutu in dance class, she quits in a huff. But everywhere Tallulah goes, things keep reminding her of ballet. Her neighbor's basset hound always stands in second position, and Tallulah always does a plie when patting him.
