Pauline, Petrova and Posy Fossil are sisters – with a difference. All three were adopted as babies by Great Uncle Matthew, an eccentric and rich explorer who then disappeared, leaving them in the care of his niece Sylvia. The girls grow up in comfort until their money begins to run out and nobody can find Great Uncle Matthew.Tweet
Resources for this book
I really enjoy this classic. It is is a really enjoyable gentle read. I think I am most like Pauline than Petrova or Posy (not that I am a HollyWood Star!). My least favourite character was Posy because she was so full of herself and did not care of anyone else or the family's money problem. I would recommend Ballet Shoes to any lover of dancing or any body who enjoys a good classic. Overall a very good book.
I love ballet, so this book is definietly for me. The beautiful language, different characters and lovely ambitions made me feel both sad and angry, as well as excited and happy. I recommend this book to older children who like dancing, like me. And I LOVE dancing!
I really enjoyed ballet shoes because it based on 3 people's hopes and dreams. They weren't related but they were brought together and they put their heads together and that's what i really liked about it. I would recommend it to children aged 9-12
Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild is an amazing book with a very touching sense. My favourite character is Pauline Fossil because she is very considerate ans is very talented
This book is AMAZING and I have really enjoyed it.
I would recommend this to people who like dance
All the sisters are very different
