"Family Shoes" tells the story of Alec, the vicar,Cathy, his wife, and the four Bell children, Paul, who wants to be a doctor, Jane, who longs to be a dancer, Ginnie, who is at once truculent and charming, and Angus, the pet-lover. Their adventures and triumphs, relationship with wealthy Uncle Alfred and Aunt Rose, the flowering of Jane's dancing talent, and the extraordinary atmosphere of the family make this book a delight from start to finish. Please treat yourself and your children.

And the customer asked about the "Shoes" books, and amonologue about the wonders of Noel Streatfeild's "Shoes"books ensued, touching on Dancing Shoes, Ballet Shoes, and Skating Shoes, which is absolutely wonderful, I cried. And I did that because I had never heard anyone other than myself talk about these terrific books, and the fact that it is tragic that they are mostly out of print and hard to find. This book is a wonderful story of working hard for a goal, and accomplishing it, or at least getting on the road to achieving a reasonable, yet magical, goal. If you want a great book for your favorite elementary school girl, buy this one - then buy the other "Shoes" books (and get a copy of Tennis Shoes for your favorite boy too!)

I wish they would bring this back into print along with the rest of the "Shoes" books by Noel Streetfield. They are wholesome books that need no censorship and are about children and families overcoming adversity.

It's in poor condition, not good or better. As I read it, the glue let go from the spine and a huge chunk of pages fell out.
