Publisher's Synopsis

A beautiful hardback edition of the beloved children's classic BALLET SHOES, with a vibrant new cover - the perfect gift for all children's book or dance enthusiasts.

BALLET SHOES is the story of Pauline, Petrova and Posy Fossil, three very different girls, each adopted as an orphaned baby by the eccentric explorer, Gum. All three girls are left in the care of Gum's niece Sylvia in London.

At first, the girls lead privileged and sheltered lives. But after five years go by and Gum fails to return, Sylvia's money starts to run out. The multi-talented Fossil girls hit on an inspired idea: they will take to the stage. Posy, daughter of a ballerina, couldn't be happier than she is in dance classes or on stage. Pauline also loves to tread the boards as an actress, but Petrova would rather be dismantling engines in a garage. It's not long before all the Fossils learn that there's more to being a star than they thought.

Originally published in 1936, Noel Streatfeild's BALLET SHOES is a beautiful story about growing up and loving the family you choose. It has stood the test of time and is adored by generations.
