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