About the Book

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.

Critical Praise

"[A] charming follow-up to 2011's Tallulah's Tutu."  --The New York Times Book Review "A lovely story that gently and effectively presents common childhood difficulties wrapped in a world of tutus and sparkles."--Kirkus Reviews "A lovely tribute to the closeness of brothers and sisters, this title holds appeal for the child needing patience, yet wanting to be recognized."--School Library Journal "Conveys Tallulah’s shifting emotions as a dancer and as a sister with equal perception and finesse. Full of light and grace, Boiger’s watercolor illustrations bring the characters to life in lively paintings. An appealing choice for ballet lovers and a fine sequel to Tallulah’s Tutu"--Booklist "Boiger's gouache and watercolor art is as fluid and graceful as a pirouette."--Publishers Weekly
