Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Watching the older girls during her ballet school’s performance of Sleeping Beauty, Tallulah notices one big difference between herself and the best dancers at her school: satin toe shoes. When the Lilac Fairy throws out an old pair of pointe shoes, Tallulah retrieves them and tries them out, with painful results. Tallulah’s initial longing and impatience gives way to sadness and discouragement, but Singer’s graceful text brings the story around to a satisfying conclusion. With its glittering jacket, empathetic writing, and expressive watercolor illustrations, this picture book from the Tallulah series will appeal to many young dancers with ballerina dreams. Preschool-Grade 2. --Carolyn Phelan

Review

"Singer once again wisely presents a quandary faced by many little ballerinas and any other child who is told to postpone immediate gratification  . . . Little girls in tutus and little girls who dream big will find that Tallulah is a kindred spirit . . . A charming entry in the ongoing saga of Tallulah."
Kirkus Reviews

"As with the previous two books, Singer and Boiger deliver the story's message with a lightness and grace befitting the subject matter, and Tallulah remains a highly empathetic heroine."
Publishers Weekly

"Children who love ballet will love this one and want to read the other titles in this series."
School Library Journal

I love that the author chose such an innocent slice of life to write about and the book is a fine addition to our ballerina-book collection.

My four year old granddaughter is in her third year of ballet and like Tallulah, thinks it's time for her to go en pointe! This book and its exquisite illustrations discusses this issue that all young ballerinas must go through. I love that the author chose such an innocent slice of life to write about and the book is a fine addition to our ballerina-book collection. Highly recommended and I'm going to buy another in the series.

We had to buy this because the library would not let us keep renewing it and my girls love it. My three year old regularly takes it to bed with a flashlight to keep looking at the pictures. It will be a hit with your little girls.

I grabbed this book at the library and after I got it home I had a bit of a concern that Tallulah might be doing pointe before her feet would be ready giving a pretty terrible lesson to little ones. I was very pleased that the author seems to know her stuff. This books a great one and perfectly addresses the "I want to do this before I'm ready" lesson that all kids face at some point.

More About the Author

Marilyn Singer was born in the Bronx (New York City) on October 3, 1948 and lived most of her early life in N. Massapequa (Long Island), NY. She attended Queens College, City University of New York, and for her junior year, Reading University, England. She holds a B.A. in English from Queens and an M.A. in Communications from New York University.

In 1974, after teaching English in New York City high schools for several years, she began to write - initially film notes, catalogues, teacher's guides, and film strips. Then, one day, when she was sitting in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, she penned a story featuring talking insect characters she'd made up when she was eight. Encouraged by the responses she got, she wrote more stories, and in 1976, her first book, The Dog Who Insisted He Wasn't, was published by E.P.Dutton & Co.

Since then, Marilyn has published over eighty books for children and young adults. Her genres are many and varied, including realistic novels, fantasies, non-fiction, fairy tales, picture books, mysteries and poetry. She likes writing many different kinds of books because it's challenging and it keeps her from getting bored.

Marilyn currently lives in Brooklyn, NY, with her husband Steve; their standard poodle Oggi, seen in the home page photo; a cat named August ; two collared doves named Jubilee and Holiday; and a starling that says, "Hi. How are you? Sweet Birdie. Okay!" Her interests include ballroom/Latin dancing, dog training, reading, hiking, bird-watching, gardening, playing computer adventure games, and going to the movies and the theatre. She's also a major Star Trek fan.

Marilyn is the former host of the AOL Children's Writers Chat and currently co-hosts the Poetry Blast at various conferences. Visit her web site: www.marilynsinger.net.
