A masterpiece (Telegraph)

'Ballet Shoes is one of my all-time favourite children's books - and you don't have to be a ballet fan to enjoy it.' - Dame Jacqueline Wilson --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition CD .

When Sylvia and her old nurse Nana agree to keep house for Gum, they know they will be looking after his fossil collection while his away on his travels. But imagine their surprise when one day he brings them something else - three baby girls whose names all being with 'P'! Pauline, Petrova and Posy Fossil are not really sisters - even their surname is invented. The girls decide to 'put our name in the history books because it's our very own', and enrol at the Children's Academy of Dancing and Stage Training. Each Fossil uses her individual talents to achieve their joint aim in this captivating story, now a modern children's classic.

Un livre qui reste pour un public plutôt jeune mais trés bon livre pour une première lecture en anglais car la lecture reste simple et fluide, de plus le livre n'est pas très long ! j'ai réussi à le lire en une après midi sans sortir une seule fois le dictionnaire.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 My five year old niece loves this. 12 mars 2017
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: CD Achat vérifié
I bought this for my five year old niece at Xmas, as she gets restless in the car, and I wanted to give her something that would distract her from the damn ipad. This is supposedly a classic (never heard of it, but the reviews were super enthusiastic) I go on vacations with my niece and my sister fairly frequently, involving long car drives. As soon as we started listening to it, I thought it would be over her head. It's pretty sophisticated for a five year old. Lots of semi-complicated plot. However, to my surprise, my niece was into it. She liked having three different girl characters to interest her, she liked their names, and she was interested in their differences. She liked the British accent of the narrator. She asked a lot of questions. I suspect she enjoyed that the girls were under the supervision of a young woman and not a parent, and she was intrigued by the dance angle.

So the lesson is, don't underestimate the children in your life. Another plus, it's quite a long story, with a lot of discs, so there's always a new chapter to get interested in. The story is pretty evenly balanced among the girls. I guess adults aren't the best judges. If I had listened to this before listening with my niece, I might have exchanged it, but my niece was immediately taken by it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Love, love 23 février 2015

Love, love, love this book. I loved it as a child and passed it on to my daughter who also loved it. I was able to buy a very high quality hardback for her some years ago and I had expected the same quality when I ordered this version for my great niece. It is not that book. The Turtleback School edition uses paper that is of the same grade that would be used in a cheap paperback. Very disappointing.

A classic story about a family of mis-matched orphans growing up, facing up to circumstances and learning that everyone is different. Entirely heartwarming.

I can't believe I never read this book until now! Very sweet. Very detailed. As a matter of fact, it's so rare nowadays for such fine, detailed, and consistent deep characterization to show up in a novel written for young people.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A sweet exercise in nostalgia 1 avril 2012
Par Tracet - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This was a nostalgic read along with an L.M. Montgomery-focused group on Goodreads; I think I wound up receiving it and finishing it too late to be useful in the discussion, but I was tickled to read it anyway. I have fond memories of Noel Streatfeild, although I don't recall reading this one. It was always fascinating to read about children participating in adult worlds; stupid as we all are when we're kids, being grown-up sounds so cool. Little do we know.

In Ballet Shoes the focus is on three little girls who have each been orphaned and separately adopted by a peripatetic anthropologist (say that five times fast) - who has dropped each of them off into the care of his sister and his housemaid in their massive museum-like home and taken off on a new voyage. The voyage he is on as the book begins has lasted quite a bit longer than his dependents expected, and straits are growing dire. Boarders are taken in, which helps matters, and as the girls approach the age at which they can legally earn money on the stage, they enter a school where they will learn to dance and to act.

In many ways books like this and the Arthur Ransome children-messing-about-in-boats books were and are as alien to me and my childhood as the most outré SciFi. Self-reliant children setting out and having adventures - unheard of. Here, though, the children have an awareness of the family's financial situation that is, I think, rare; the aunts hide the worst of it from them, but they do know that if their almost criminally negligent Gum doesn't manage to find his way back, and soonest, there will be some extremely uncomfortable consequences. Things have changed even since this book was written, to the point that in most of the first world today having to send three small children out to work - even at something as theoretically fun as theatre and dance - is extreme. But I think as a child it was captivating to read about it. Here are kids not too unlike me who if they had to could fend for themselves. They're doing something so very much cooler than going to bright boring elementary school every day, and earning money to help their family. Reading a book like this as an adult is, as mentioned, an exercise in nostalgia - not a reminiscence about or wistfulness for an unjaded time when I had adventures like the children in the book, but when I saw only the excitement of the adventures and none of the dangers or tedium.
