Reviews of Ballet Shoes

Overall customer rating: 4.000
Debi  L

What little girl doesn't, at some time in her life, fancy being a ballerina? This book will appeal to fans of ballet, but it is also a great read for all children. The Fossil children are, like many of Noel Streatfeild's characters, orphans who are in the care of well-meaning guardians who cannot always help them with all the difficulties they have in their lives. Pauline, Petrova and Posy Fossil each have their own ambitions in life and they work hard to make their dreams come true. Posy is on her way to becoming a dancing star, while Pauline is to be an actress. Petrova is the tom-boy of the lot and she puts dancing aside for her true love: aviation. Steeped in the language, customs and lifestyle of 1940's Britain, this book is a nice reminder of a time gone by. Children will get a look at the past and see how much life has changed since then, both in Britain and the USA. I think this is a wonderful book and highly recommend it.

Gives great inside information on theatre and dance, yet is a kind of fairy tale. Very fortunate children. Number of typo errors in this particular printing but still an enjobable readable.
