So the lesson is, don't underestimate the children in your life. Another plus, it's quite a long story, with a lot of discs, so there's always a new chapter to get interested in. The story is pretty evenly balanced among the girls. I guess adults aren't the best judges. If I had listened to this before listening with my niece, I might have exchanged it, but my niece was immediately taken by it.
1 Posy, Petrova and Pauline lack charector development throught out this book. Petrovas loves mechanics but, honestly, shes hopeless at anything else. Ppsy leads the same roll to. Shes a great dancer, but nothing ever goes wrong for the youngest fossil. Pauline turns into a bit of a show off in the middle but does learn to be respective towards producers and actors.
2 Madame Fiodolia. She speaks french half the time which i can barely understand!!
3 One of the things i like is Gum. He rescued the fossils and sent them to sylvia.
4 The vowing thing got on my nerves a bit.
5 Its overall old fshioned though i understand it was written quite a long time ago.
So an okay book, really
Plot was abit predictable too. I knew Gum would come back since chptr 1.
I probably will try a streatfeild book again but i say give this a miss and read Harry Potter instead XD
I am sure it was a good book back in the 1960's or something, but not for today's children.

There is nothing sugar coated in this timeless classic children's' book about three orphan girls who are adopted by an eccentric English explorer, then left to be brought up by a housekeeper in London. Their struggles to achieve their individual goals as ballerina, actress and (eventually) pilot are a compelling read, as they battle through hard work and poverty to eventually achieve their ambitions.The story resonates with warmth, fun and love for each other, as they learn to support each other to achieve their ambitions.
my daughter (9)received this for her birthday. she was glued to it. fastest she has ever listened to audiobook.
