9780099583363: The Bell Family

A charming tale of life in the Bell family from the much-loved author of Ballet Shoes, with original illustrations by Shirley Hughes

Meet the big, happy Bell family who live in the vicarage at St. Marks. Father is a reverend, Mother is as kind as kind can be. Then there are the children—practical Paul, dancing Jane, mischievous Ginnie, and finally the baby of the family, Angus, whose ambition is to own a private zoo (he has already begun with his six boxes of caterpillars). And not forgetting Esau, a sure fire competitor for the most beautiful dog in Britain. Follow their eventful lives from tense auditions to birthday treats; from troubled times to hilarious escapades. Exclusive material in the back of the book includes a chance to find out which one of the Bell children you most resemble.

About the Author:

Noel Streatfeild's (1895-1986) first novel, Ballet Shoes, is her best-known book but she went on to write many well-loved books for children, including Circus Shoes which won the Carnegie Medal, Skating Shoes, and Theater Shoes. Shirley Hughes is the author of more than 200 books, including the Alfie series.

Review:

"Noel Streatfeild has that happy, skillful knack of turning her characters into real people - something which only really good novelists can do. A first-rate book" BBC Children's Hour "Noel Streatfeild's position in the children's book world is unique. She is endlessly inventive, full of verve and real understanding of the surfaces of childhood. Her stories are rich in documentary interest and entertainment, escapism of a most satisfying sort" Times Literary Supplement
