Tallulah is tiny, but the TUBA is not!
Tallulah isn’t big, but the instrument she dreams of playing sure is. Try as she might, tiny Tallulah keeps coming up short on how she can play the tuba in her school band. But with some perseverance and a lot of creativity, Tallulah hatches a plan that she hopes will turn her musical dream into reality.
Children will laugh along with this fun and engaging story featuring a diverse protagonist who takes matters into her own hands to solve a problem.
