Sweet book! Perfect for a 9-12 year old girl. I don't know if it was typos, but it could have used better editing before publishing. Still enjoyed the book! Saving it for my daughter.

A beautifully told story of three orphan girls' adoption and love of each other. One a dancer, one an actress, and one really out of place in performing arts, Pauline, Petrova, and Posy find love and a place in the world. A great, funny, sad, touching, fun story, great for any age.

This was a really cute book for kids. A little slow for me though.

this book is great. I especially recommend this book for anyone who is interested in dancing/theater. However, it is still a GREAT read for anyone who is not. A great story about family, theater, and hope.

FROM THE PUBLISHER
In the tradition of Frances Hodgson Burnetts The Little Princess come Noel Streatfeilds 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.

I have loved this book since I first read it back when I was a kid, and I still enjoy reading it now that I am in my 70s, as well as Noel Streatfeild's other books for children.
