Publisher's Summary

When three English orphans, Pauline, Petrova, and Posy, join the Children's Academy of Dancing and Stage Training to help out their new family, they have no idea it's going to be such hard work!Vowing to make a name for themselves, they launch into the world of show business, complete with working papers, the glare of the spotlight, and practice, practice, practice!
But the theater isn't right for all of them...Pauline is destined for the movies. Posy is a born dancer. Practical Petrova finds she'd rather pilot a plane than perform a pirouette. Each girl must find the courage and the talent to follow her dream.

Magical and Memorable

I love this book, I have since I was little. After many years I decided to buy it for old times sake and I am so glad that I did! The performance is stunning and the story is as magical as ever. Oh to be a Fossil!
