A 2013 Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award Winner Tallulah
shines as a real little dancer with her own distinct style,

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.
An un-sugar-coated, but humorous, portrayal of life in the theater for young dancers--and an encouraging example for any reader.
