Ballet Shoes, by Noel Streatfeild

IndieBound Description:

In the tradition of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Little Princess come Noel Streatfeild’s tales of triumph. In this story, three orphan girls vow to make a name for themselves and find their own special talents. With hard work, fame just may be in the stars! Originally published in 1937.

My Thoughts:
Noel Streatfeild is one of my favorite authors, right up there with Lucy Maud Montgomery. I loved all the "Shoes" books and this new, beautiful  covers are done by uber-talented friend Alissa Imre Geis.

We share the same taste in books - the Shoes books and Anne are some of my favorites too! Did you also love Beverly Cleary, like me?
