Présentation de l'éditeur

New York Times bestselling author Tori Spelling's debut picture book!

All her life, Tallulah has heard what she’s not supposed to do: Don’t get dirty…don’t talk loudly… don’t wear jeans like all the other kids. “You’re not that kind of girl,” everybody keeps telling her. Tallulah knows plenty about what she can’t do and what she shouldn’t do, about what kind of girl she isn’t. But it’s up to her to figure out what kind of girl she is. New York Times bestselling author Tori Spelling and illustrator Vanessa Newton bring us the story of a spunky little girl who, with the help of some special friends, is able to discover exactly who she is.

This is a great story about finding oneself. The illustrations are beautiful! Also, if you're a Tori Spelling fan, you'll enjoy noticing the similarities and characters between Tallulah's world and Tori's world.

Finally, a book for those misunderstood super-rich girls! 11 février 2012
Par my fellow americans - Publié sur Amazon.com
Ok, so the story about the poor unaccepted kid who really has a lot of heart has been done to death. What new direction can we take...how about a extremely rich girl who isn't allowed to wear "regular" kid clothes, walk to school like "regular" kids, and eat "regular" kid food and is instead, horrifyingly, forced to wear designer clothes, ride to school in a limo, and eat gourmet food!

I'll bet at this point there is not a dry eye reading this review.

Probably loosely based on Tori's life, I had a hard time suspending my disbelief while reading this to my 2-year old.

I suppose the merits of this book include teaching kids that...actually, I have no idea what the merits of this book are. Sorry.

She does rescue a dog that the mean "regular" kids say is too ugly to care about (those heartless 99%-er's), so you know...that's good.

Why did I give this book 2 stars? The illustrations. Very well done.

Totally inappropriate for children 27 décembre 2010
Par Violet - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book is horrible. It is vapid, poorly written, and imparts a highly questionable message to children. I know that on the surface it purports to celebrate self expression, despite what the rest of the world says. However, the corollary message is that regular, i.e. not wealthy, kids are jerks, and that the travails of an incredibly privileged little princess are somehow worthy of our attention. I have no pity for the alter-ego of Tori Spelling, whose own life of self display and exploitation of her children is nothing exemplary. The misguided grown ups in the book are no doubt true to life in some circles, and her "poor little rich girl" existence is likely largely autobiographical, but enough already! There are much better things to read your children that impart similar morals with much more depth, perceptiveness, and relevance to the greater population. Don't be fooled by celebrity commodities! It's not worth your attention or your money.

90210 for the pre-teen crowd 6 janvier 2012
Par David Griffiths - Publié sur Amazon.com
I did everything in my power to keep an open, unbiased, mind as I read this to my 6 year old. The story is pretty simple - a little girl stands out, and isn't accepted by her peers, because her parents want her to be well dressed, be transported to school in a limousine, and to not get dirty. It turns out she's a female Richie Rich, the poor little rich girl.

I'm sure the little boys and girls who gave Tallulah a rough time know someone (a parent) who was laid off when Tallulah's dad moved the local factory to China. In the age of off-shoring, sub-prime meltdowns, etc, feeling sympathy for someone of excessive wealth and privilege is ridiculous.

The story gets worse. We are introduced to Max, Tallulah's friend who is an odd light-brown colour, and wears a tie - a Hispanic Alex P. Keaton, perhaps. He is the new kid, and also an outcast due to his higher socio-economic status. He doesn't do much, other than to appear in page after page with Tallulah. A nice touch of political-correctness.

Other aspects of the story are even more ridiculous. The cruel, heartless poor kids see a puppy stranded on a log in the middle of the schools fishing pond. In this age of bubble-wrapped children, that pond would never have existed. Regardless, these unaccompanied children stand at the edge of this future lawsuit masquerading as a wet-land, and taunt the puppy before running off to do whatever poor kids do (steal from a store, maybe burn down a building, or beat an old woman senseless for her social security check). Obviously, only wealthy children can have any sense of empathy.

Leave it up to Tallulah and two-dimensional Max to save the day, using Tallulahs sash to rescue the puppy.

The illustrations were pretty decent - I liked the way the adults heads were cut off by the top of the page, or had their faces hidden by magazines or laptops. It added a sense that the world created in the book was inhabited by children, and the adults were peripheral. I did have one problem - Tallulah looked exactly like Tori Spelling. It was a bit creepy.

Two stars, mostly for the illustrations.

Tallulah is not supposed to get dirty. Or talk loudly. Or make a mess. She isn't that kind of girl. Tallulah can't wear jeans or sneakers to school or keep her hair down or do any of the other things that the other kids do every day.

According to her parents, Tallulah is special and that makes her different. But Tallulah doesn't want to be different. It's hard to have fun or make friends when everyone is busy telling you the things you can do because you're different.

When Max, the new boy in school, stands up for Tallulah (and assists with a risky pug puppy rescue) Tallulah starts to see that sometimes being different can be okay. And most of the time the best of friends like you just the way you are in Presenting . . . Tallulah (September 2010) by Tori Spelling* and Vanessa Brantley Newton.

There are a lot of books about being different learning that it's okay to be yourself even if that might mean being a little silly, or weird, or not mosterly. Some of them are quite bad using cliches and heavy handed writing to convey their message while ultimately creating major issues in the story.

Presenting Tallulah has none of those problems. This was a delightful story about a little girl many kids can relate to. Maybe not everyone goes to school in a limo, but who hasn't been told to be quiet and not get dirty? This story captures that (and Tallulah's rather . . . opulent . . . . lifestyle) without making it a big thing. Tallulah is who she is and, as she learns, that's okay. I liked that instead of beating readers over the head with this message, it's just at the core of the text.

Newton's illustrations are also fantastic. The style is reminiscent of illustrations by Lauren Child (of Charlie and Lola fame) which probably means a similar medium (that I am unequipped to identify) is being used here. It's no secret that Tallulah is based on Tori Spelling. And Newton captures that while combining broad strokes and line work to create intricate illustrations that bring Tallulah's world to life.

Presenting Tallulah is sure to be a fun addition to any story time with simple, short sentences and a well-paced plot. Hopefully this charmer won't be the last to feature Tallulah, Max and Mimi.

*With contributions by Hilary Liftin who is apparently a ghostwriter. I could get into who actually "wrote" the book or the recent number of celebrities putting pen to paper. But I'm not going to because this book deserves better and is more than able to stand on its own with or without is celebrity author.

Possible Pairings: Bark, George by Jules Feffer, Mostly Monsterly by Tammi Sauer and Scott Magoon, For Pete's Sake by Ellen Stoll Walsh
