I suppose the merits of this book include teaching kids that...actually, I have no idea what the merits of this book are.

The illustrations are really nice, the story is great and has a message but isn't at all preachy.

This is a great story about finding oneself. The illustrations are beautiful! Also, if you're a Tori Spelling fan, you'll enjoy noticing the similarities and characters between Tallulah's world and Tori's world.

Firstly, this book is not a long read, it's great for a bedtime story.

Secondly, it has a timeless message about being your own person and how parents don't allow their kids to be kids sometimes.

Thirdly, it has Tori Spelling's name on it (and maybe a ghostwriter helped but it's for darned sure this story is based on Tori's life!).

Attaching a famous celebrity's name doesn't help when it comes to a kids book like this because parents are the ones who dole out the cash, so I checked this book out, read a little in Borders and was pleasantly surprised.

The illustrations are really nice, the story is great and has a message but isn't at all preachy.

This is a book you can buy for any sweet little girl in your life and is good for those who can read to younger siblings too.

I would describe this one as a keeper!

Ok, so the story about the poor unaccepted kid who really has a lot of heart has been done to death. What new direction can we take...how about a extremely rich girl who isn't allowed to wear "regular" kid clothes, walk to school like "regular" kids, and eat "regular" kid food and is instead, horrifyingly, forced to wear designer clothes, ride to school in a limo, and eat gourmet food!

I'll bet at this point there is not a dry eye reading this review.

Probably loosely based on Tori's life, I had a hard time suspending my disbelief while reading this to my 2-year old.

I suppose the merits of this book include teaching kids that...actually, I have no idea what the merits of this book are. Sorry.

She does rescue a dog that the mean "regular" kids say is too ugly to care about (those heartless 99%-er's), so you know...that's good.

Why did I give this book 2 stars? The illustrations. Very well done.

My 4 yr old daughter got this book as birthday present and we read together once. I wish I had read it first by myself before that. There is no applicable moral from the story and nothing I can or want my daughter to relate to. Super rich girl who has everything, inhibited by her family, alienated by unprivileged people around her, finally freed herself when she rescued a dog and befriended another super rich boy...I have a hard time believing the story. This book feels like more of self expression - probably more of a reflection of the author's own childhood. It has more self pity than gratitude. I wouldn't want my daughter to read it again.

This is a great children's book for a little boy or girl. Bought it for my son but also for my nieces and nephews. A nice departure form the usual children's stories.

I ordered this book for my 5yr old cousin when i ordered other tori spelling books for my self. It was honestly a great purchase. ive already read this book to her about 3-4 times and she still loves it and wants me to read it to her a few nights a week. It not only has great pictures, it teaches a lesson and to me thats one thing that i love about this book. I like that my cousin will get something good out of this book and also be able to enjoy it. Im glad my money was well worth the purchase!

My 3 yr.old loves this book & I love reading it to her! Super adorable! A little girl that just wants to be a child. A new boy at school stand up for her and helps her rescue a pug puppy. They take care of it be washing it and let's the reader know it's ok to get dirty while you play.
