One of my very favourite books from childhood is being made into a film for the BBC to be screened sometime this Christmas ...

BBC Drama today announces a major new dramatisation of Ballet Shoes, the classic novel by Noel Streatfeild. The feature-length film will transmit on BBC One later this year.

It's being adapted by Heidi Thomas who is responsible for Lilies and the current BBC costume drama success, Cranford

I think it will be for all ages and not just for children ......well I'll be watching ... :wink: ... :D

Becky,

It was one of my favourites as well, I don't know how may times I read it! I heard something about a film but had forgotten so something to look forward to.

I have never heard of this book or the author, but had a look and I've ordered it, as it's only £4.99.
I see he's written several books about "shoes"

I'm looking forward to reading that.

I've just noticed it says for age group 8-12 !!

Should be up to my intellectual level then! Might have a struggle though! :bw1:

Hi Fly......

Despite the spelling of the first name of the author it's a woman......Mary Noel Streatfeild.

Yes, I saw it Dawn. It was very good imho. Just one little quibble with the casting - I thought Victoria Wood was not exactly who I'd have thought of as the nanny. Still, I must say I did enjoy it.

As it turned out, the book never arrived. They sent me the wrong one, all about some obscure religion, so I sent it back and they have refunded my money.

argh......
