    Tallulah is certain she will have a solo in her dance school’s upcoming performance of
    The Frog Prince. After all, she is now an excellent ballerina. And she’s proud that her
    little brother, Beckett, has started taking ballet too, even though he spends most of his
    time goofing off.
    But then Tallulah gets an unexpected surprise . . . and not the good kind. What’s a
    ballerina to do when everything does not go as planned?
    Ballet and sibling rivalry meet head-on in this fabulous follow-up to Tallulah’s Tutu.
