"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 like all the "Shoes" books but I really love this one most of all! This book introduces you to the Bell Family of 2 Boys,2 Girls,their parents & there wonderful Housekeeper Mrs.Gage.These Kids live in Great Britain with there parents and are always having fun & adventures.They are like a real family with arguments and getting into trouble and having fun too!This is one of those books that you dont want to put down once you have started it! And there is a sequel too called "New Shoes". You will enjoy meeting the Bell Family!

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.
