Noel Streatfeild µ 0 reviewReading this just made me happy Ridiculous but true It s really a lovely book with strong sensible characters This s probably the first book ever where I cannot say The book Smack is better straight away First of allt Night of the Living Dead Christian is clear that the books for children and the film The New World Order is for the grown ups But the beauty remainsn bothPauline Petrova and Posy are sister by accident as they were all adopted by a wealthy and nice uncle Matthew whom they called Gum because Great Uncle Matthew GUM After he brought the youngest Posy home though he disappeared There was enough money King Solomons Carpet in the bank for a couple of years butt was not enough and soon they ran short of Halflings (Halflings, it The sisters were all talented Pauline could act and recite and Posy wasn t very far from being a professional ballerina And Petrova wasncredibly clever although she was The Big Snuggle-Up interestedn cars and engines Too Close for Comfort (Jo Birmingham instead of performing arts As the girls grew up they decided to act for money so they could support their poor household They have made a vow regularly because they believed they could achieve great things And because their names were uniue no one could sayt was because of their grandfathers But the way towards their Trauma isn t always easyIts fairly obvious that some changes were reuired so the t always easyIt The Dark Lord Trilogy (Star Wars: The Dark Lord Trilogy, is fairly obvious that some changes were reuired so the could be a family friendly one So that parents would not be too bored But to be honest I liked the change I enjoyed the relationship and the mild romantic tension between Garnie and Mr Simpson and I really missed thatn the book But I do understand that children might really not find that very Speech-making and Presentation Made Easy interesting On the other hand I m really sad the part with the Blue Bird play wasn tn the film as I think Happiness the Mindful Way it could have been donen a really nice way To conclude I would say that the book s probably as good as the *film but t s still leaning towards the *but A First Book of Jewish Bible Stories it s still leaning towards the that the films a little bit better But t s a purely subjective view because I m very sensitive towards films like thisand come on this one has even got Emma Watson The Bully int I had two career goals as a little girl I would be a ballerinaor a librarian heh Well I started ballet at three and continued through college but alas never made The Regiment it to the big stage I am a librarian though so go figureI loved these books so much as a child All of her series that I read I should say but especially ballet shoes Thiss a fascinating vanished world Remember the scene The Kingdom (Fargo Adventure, in You ve Got Mail where Colleen Kelly Meg Ryans sitting Johnny Came Home in the children s section of the newly opened Foxx Books and a customer comesn looking for the Shoes books by Noel Streatfield The clerk has clearly never heard of them but Colleen has and she tells the customer that The Ballet Shoes s definitely the one she should start withThis s that bookIn the twenty first century a particularly cynical reader might accuse the book of containing certain tropes that have become so common as to be considered cliche these days The plucky British orphans the valiantly struggling relation the general bonhomie of the outside world which makes everything somehow bearable the happy ending Yet note that I ve awarded this an uneuivocal 5 stars That s because sugary The Complete Idiots Guide to Raising Chickens it may be ands but darn The Complete Idiots Guide to Finance for Small Business it there are just some days when you ren the mood for sugar And plucky British orphans And happy endings And His Guarded Heart if you happen to ben such a mood on the day you read this book or listen to the audiobook version as I did then you re The Woman Who Walked Into the Sea in.
