This is my least favorite of Streatfeild's "Shoes" books - it seems slow in contrast to the others. During WW-II, Selina, whose parents are in Asia and who is living in England with her doctor uncle and his wife and children, receives from a relative in the USA a beautiful party dress with matching shoes. The children decide to put on a pageant featuring Selina in her dress, to raise money for the war effort, and involving many of the village people. Various difficulties ensue.

Not Streatfield's best, but an interesting story in war time England. Children put on a benefit in aid of soldiers despite difficulties.
