Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This young and funny picture book introduces the soon-to-be star of her school talent show: Penny. Despite her desire to knock everyoneand#39;s socks off, Pennyand#39;s having a tough time deciding on what talent she might have. With a little help from her dog, Jelly, Penny tries out various talentsandmdash;from dancing to unicycling, fashion designing to snake charmingandmdash;with disastrous results. That is, until she realizes that she and Jelly have a talent to share thatand#39;s unlike any other. Readers of Pinkalicious and Ladybug Girl will swoon over the talent of Penny and Jelly.

Review:

"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.

Synopsis:

Ballet and sibling rivalry meet head on in this sweet companion to Tallulahs Tutu, in which headstrong ballerina Tallulah dreams of performing a solo in a ballet performance until her little brother begins dance class and disrupts her plans, from Marilyn Singer, lushly illustrated by Alexandra Boiger.

Synopsis:

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.

Synopsis:

Tallulah is certain she will have a solo in her dance schools upcoming performance of

The Frog Prince. After all, she is now an excellent ballerina. And shes 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. Whats a

ballerina to do when everything does not go as planned?

Ballet and sibling rivalry meet head-on in this fabulous follow-up to Tallulahs Tutu.
