Ballet Shoes




A Puffin Book - stories that last a lifetime

Ballet Shoes is the much loved classic by Noel Streatfeild
'I wonder . . . if other girls had to be one of us, which of us they'd choose to be?'
Pauline longs to be an actress.
Petrova is happiest playing with cars and engines.
And if she could . . . Posy would dance all day!
But when their benefactor Great-Uncle Matthew disappears, the Fossil girls share a future of a dazzling life on stage, where their dreams and fears will soon come true . . .

Noel Streatfeild once said that Ballet Shoes was 'really a fairy story with its feet half-way on the ground' - a magical description for a magical book.
