Product Description

When orphans Sorrel, Mark, and Holly are sent to live with their grandmother, the renowned actress Margaret Shaw, she enrolls them in the Children's Academy of Dancing and Stage Training. Sorrel objects. The academy will provide only theatrical training--not the "proper education" their parents would have wanted. But their grandmother is determined to have them carry on what she calls the family tradition. Eventually, though, the children learn to like--even love--the academy. Sorrel discovers she's got real dramatic flair, and Mark literally finds his voice as a singer. Meanwhile, Holly charms everyone with her adorable, impish ways. Might it be true that talent does run in the family after all?

Three orphans are forced to enter a theater school by their grandmother, a famous actress. Unable to pay the tuition, they are given scholarships from the now-grown orphans from Ballet Shoes.

Author Bio

Noel Streatfeild was born in Sussex in 1895 and was one of three sisters. Although she was considered the plain one she ended up leading the most glamorous and exciting life! After working in munitions factories and canteens for the armed forces when WWI broke out, Noel followed her dream of being on stage and went to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, where she became a professional actress. She began writing children's books in 1931 and Ballet Shoes was published in 1936. She quickly became one of the most popular authors of her day. When she visited Puffin exhibitions, there were queues right out of the building and all the way down the Mall. She was one of the first winners of the Carnegie Medal and was awarded an OBE in 1983. Noel Streatfeild lived in London. She died in 1986.
