Tallulah's Toe Shoes
( by Marilyn Singer/ illus Alexandra Boiger, Clarion $16.99 Score: )

Tallulah, like so many other little ballerinas is longing to toe shoes, the kind that real ballerinas wear when they dance on pointe. Not content to wait, as everyone tries to tell her she must, she takes home a pair of discarded slippers and makes some sad discoveries. Unlike so many ballet stories, this one ends on a hopeful note with a nod to the bigger idea that some things you have to wait for and can't happen instantly.
