About the Book



Just in time for Christmas, Tallulah is about to get her fondest wish--a starring role in a real production of The Nutcracker!



Book Synopsis



It's Christmastime, and Tallulah finally gets what she's been wishing for--a part in a real ballet, a professional production of The Nutcracker. She's only a mouse, but she works as hard as if she had been cast as the Sugar Plum Fairy.

On the night of the show, everything is perfect. But then disaster strikes! Does Tallulah have what it takes to become a real ballerina?

A well-told story, gorgeous illustrations, and a beloved character conspire to make a positively magical Christmas book.



Review Quotes




"An un-sugar-coated, but humorous, portrayal of life in the theater for young dancers--and an encouraging example for any reader."
-- Horn Book Magazine

"As in the previous Tallulah books, Boiger's muted watercolors offer understated elegance, while Singer gingerly addresses how the wisdom of caring adults and role models can bring valuable perspective to a moment of humiliation."

-- Publishers Weekly

"With expressive, insouciant watercolor illustrations, ballet terms like 'sissone' sprinkled sparingly throughout the text, and the obligatory glitter-heavy jacket art, this is a charming holiday choice." -- School Library Journal

"Tallulah shines as a real little dancer with her own distinct style, learning step by step."
-- Kirkus Reviews
