Summary

A full cast dramatisation of this classic children's book. Pauline, Petrova, and Posy Fossil are not really sisters; even their surname is invented since Great Uncle Matthew(GUM) adopted each of them on his various fossil-hunting trips. When the trio decide to "put our name in the history books because it's our very own", each Fossil uses her individual talents to achieve their joint aim in this captivating story, now a modern children's classic.

Twee

I love 'Ballet Shoes', but this adaptation is terribly twee. All the characters are impossibly jolly. A poor realisation of Streatfield's wonderful novel.

Fantastic Story :Ballet Shoes

Ballet Shoes is a wonderful story and I would recommend it to the people whom love and adore Ballet.

The only thing I would change about it is the chapters. I would let somebody say ' Chapter one or chapter two.💗💗💗💗💗💗🇫🇷🇫🇷🇫🇷🇫🇷

Careful when downloading

Careful, I made the mistake of downloading this title from audible.com for the kids. This is an abridged "dramatized" version.

The Unabridged version is only available through AudibleKids. However, on that site the abridged version is not available. I had thought the two sites were the same and since there is only one version on each site, I thought they were the same. So be careful, don't click to quickly. They are not the same, one is 2 hours long, the other 6 hours. For the same price of course. Makes perfect sense right?

sigh!

Somewhat charming but highly improbable story!

If you are a fan of this tale from childhood, I'm sure you'll enjoy this adaptation of "Ballet Shoes". That being said, the storyline is highly improbable to the point of absurdity. Coming from a professional dance background myself, I found the whole dance school set-up to be preposterous. It is definitely a dated book. The actors present the play well however I did not find the character of Posy very likeable at all. I could only recommend this book as a curiosity.
