Three orphans are forced to enter a theater school by their grandmother, a famous actress. Unable to pay the tuition, they are given scholarships from the now-grown orphans from Ballet Shoes. Will they be able to live up to their patrons' legacies? The children are ready to run away - until they discover their hidden talents.

    "unabridged???"

    this is one of my favourite books, and has been for over 20 years. so i was really pleased to find an unabridged recording. except, some of my favourite lines were missing. its possible of course that they never were in the american edition of this book, but i can't really see why that would be. what there was was good, other than hannah's own words in the hymns being unaccountably spoken rather than sung (the narrator obviously knew the tunes), which lowered the humour. but to leave out mark's description of his voice as a long grey man with a feather in his mouth seems a little strange.

    "Great book, great performance!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Theater Shoes to be better than the print version?

    It's hard for me to choose. The audio version brings it to life, for sure. But I also have the book and it's enjoyable to curl up with on a rainy day.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Just the whole theme. The performing arts school, the children dealing with a very new side of their family. There was so much to love.


    Have you listened to any of Elizabeth Sastre’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, all the audiobooks in the Shoes series and I absolutely love her voice in all of them. This one's the same, full of emotion and life.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! And I've done so many times, just like with the other books in the series.


    Any additional comments?

    I just love it. Don't hesitate, get it. A nice story to listen to whether on a road trip, taking a relaxing break, or just want a short story to read. I only wish there were more!
