    A full cast dramatisation of this classic children's book. Pauline, Petrova, and Posy Fossil are not really sisters; even their surname is invented since Great Uncle Matthew(GUM) adopted each of them on his various fossil-hunting trips. When the trio decide to "put our name in the history books because it's our very own", each Fossil uses her individual talents to achieve their joint aim in this captivating story, now a modern children's classic.

    When orphans Sorrel, Mark, and Holly are sent to live with their grandmother, a famous English actress, she enrolls them in the Children's Academy of Dancing and Stage Training, the same academy that made the orphans from Ballet Shoes famous so long ago. It's the chance of a lifetime, but the academy won't give the children the "proper" education their parents would have wanted. However, the children learn to love the academy when they find out that Sorrel has dramatic flair, Mark can sing, and Holly charms everyone with her adorable, impish ways.

    Fossiliensammler Matthew Brown bringt von seinen Weltreisen nicht nur alte Steine mit, sondern nacheinander auch drei Findelkinder: Pauline, Petrova und Posy. Seitdem herrscht ordentlich Trubel in seinem großen Haus. Erst recht, als die drei an der Ballett- und Schauspielakademie für Kinder angenommen werden. Doch während die theaterbegeisterte Pauline und die tanzwütige Posy schon von einer großen Karriere träumen, ist Petrova gar nicht erbaut: Sie interessiert sich viel mehr für Autos und Flugzeuge.
