Tallulah's Solo--May 2012

Written by Marilyn Singer, illustrated by Alexandra Boiger and published by Clarion Books.

After a year of ballet classes, Tallulah is a practiced ballerina and confident she will land the starring role in the upcoming show. Her little brother, Beckett, is eager to begin ballet after watching Tallulah for so long. Tallulah is proud to have a brother interested in dance, and tries to give him some helpful tips. But Beckett is easily distracted and doesn't really listen to either Tallulah or his teacher. This is fine with Tallulah, until Beckett is given a lead in the show--the frog in the Frog Prince—while Tallulah is cast as a lady-in-waiting.
