Many little girls love to dance, dreaming of toe shoes and the grace that comes with being a ballerina. Tallulah is no exception. She practices hard, hoping each day will be the day she earns her tutu. But patience isn’t one of her virtues, and she quickly becomes frustrated when her tutu doesn’t appear fast enough. It takes a lesson out in the real world to remind her that there really are things worth waiting for.
Author Marilyn Singer studies ballroom and Latin dance, proving that it is never too late to learn grace and form, but she still dreams of having her own tutu . Illustrator Alexandra Boiger uses watercolor, gouache and egg yolk to paint light and flowing pictures to complement the text, and from first glance we fall in love with Tullulah and want nothing more than her dream of a tutu to come true.
A perfect gift for any little girl who loves to dance, no matter how old she might be.
