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.

I've read Ballet Shoes once or twice as an adult and it definitely holds up. I ended up very involved in theatre through high school and college, so perhaps this book is why, and reading Ballet Shoes over again now makes ...more I loved this book and read it several times as a child.

Great story and reader

This was a good one to listen to while shuttling between activities. My 12 year old daughter chose this book and I completely enjoyed it.
