When three orphans Pauline, Petrova, and Posy vow to make a name for themselves, they have no idea that it's going to be such hard work! With the help of a kindly benefactress, they launch themselves into the world of show business, complete with working papers, the glare of the footlights...and practice, practice, practice. Each girl quickly finds her own special talent. Pauline--with a flair for the dramatic--seems destined for the movies. Posy is a born dancer. Practical Petrova, however, discovers she'd rather pilot a plan that do a pirouette.Recommended for ages 8 to 12.
