A cute story about a little girl who has lost her beloved tutu and learns a valuable lesson in her pursuit of it.
I was drawn to this book, because of the emphasis on the tutu. My treasured one (TO) is all about glittery tutus right now, so I thought she would really connect to the story. And, she did.
