Tallulah is certain she will have a solo in her dance school’s upcoming performance of The Frog Prince. After all, she is now an excellent ballerina. And she’s proud that her little brother, Beckett, has started taking ballet too, even though he spends most of his time goofing off.
But then Tallulah gets an unexpected surprise . . . and not the good kind. What’s a ballerina to do when everything does not go as planned?
Ballet and sibling rivalry meet head-on in this fabulous follow-up to Tallulah’s Tutu.
Tallulah, the aspiring ballerina whose tutu tunnel vision led to a meltdown in Tallulah's Tutu, is as determined as ever to achieve her dancing dream. But when her brother, Beckett, who does nothing but pick his nose and goof off in ballet class, wins a bigger role than she does in a production of The Frog Prince, Tallulah is seriously chagrined. Though Tallulah's turnaround is a tad hasty, Singer conveys her initial frustration and disappointment with authenticity, while Boiger's gouache and watercolor art is as fluid and graceful as a pirouette. Ages 4 8. Illustrator's agent: Marcia Wernick, Wernick & Pratt.
