Cat wants to act
Tallulah the Theatre Cat
by Jennifer Brown (Acorn Press)
Tallulah the cat dreams of life on the stage, but everyone keeps shooing her away. However, every cat must follow her bliss, so Tallulah manages to interrupt a few performances. This doesn't sit well with the theatre folk, who rudely tell her off. Feeling hurt, Tallulah disappears for a while. But she returns when she discovers how much she is missed.
A cheerful, true story about a furry thespian in Victoria-by-the-Sea, Prince Edward Island. Brown's colourful artwork form the perfect backdrop for her bouncy, light verse. It's easy to see why her book has won the L.M. Montgomery Award for Children's LIterature. Tallulah is irresistible!
