"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." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Ice cream truck jing-a-linging Nine phones ringing, ten horns beeping In the stroller Baby's sleeping.
Will anything wake up that snoozing baby? Follow the red stroller through the cacophony of the city and find out! Rhythm, rhyme, and lots of noisy onomatopoeia from premier children's poet Marilyn Singer, coupled with chaotic, colorful art from an acclaimed European illustrator, make this a rowdy read-aloud, with plenty of things to find and count on every spread.
Tallulah is certain she will have a solo in her dance schooland#8217;s upcoming performance of
The Frog Prince. After all, she is now an excellent ballerina. And sheand#8217;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. Whatand#8217;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 Tallulahand#8217;s Tutu.
