Love is a Tutu


Love Is a Tutu sweetly captures the earnest love of all things ballet in simple rhyming text by Amy Novesky. The bun, the barre, and even a tutu worn to bed are all brought to life by the bright retro illustrations of Sara Gillingham. This beautifully designed and playfully illustrated novelty board book is the perfect starting point for tiny ballerinas and parents alike. Sweet and spare rhymes prance across the pages, engaging the reader with real ballet terms and plenty of pink. Parents and toddlers together will sigh “Brava” as they turn off the light.
