    This engrossing new fiction series follows the fortunes and crises of a group of students at an inner-city, multicultural ballet school as they contend with the pressures of dancing, form friendships, and try to discover their place in the world. The first book follows the journey of a boy dancer, Peter, as he struggles with being bullied by his peers over his passion and considers giving up ballet, until a chance encounter with a dog and a famous footballer works to change his perspective. Touching on many of the concerns and interests that occupy children in contemporary Britain, these stories will thrill, move and fascinate young readers.

    Noel Streatfield has inspired many would-be actors and ballet dancers with her classic children's book Ballet Shoes. And the book's enduring appeal lies in the three Fossil sisters' fiercely different characters.

    "I wonder... if other girls had to be one of us, which of us they'd choose to be?" Pauline longs to be an actress. Petrova is happiest playing with cars and engines. And if she could... Posy would dance all day!

    But when their benefactor Great-Uncle Matthew disappears, the future for the Fossil girls is threatened. Ballet Shoes is the perfect present for ballet-mad children aged 7+.
