Noel Streatfeild

Author of Ballet Shoes

"I find that it takes me nearly a year of thinking about my people before I know them well enough to write about them."
   - Noel Streatfeild

"My favourite writer of all time is Jane Austen, but when I was younger I liked ... Noel Streatfeild."
"I still reread [Ballet Shoes]."
   - J. K. Rowling

"I'd start with Ballet Shoes, it's my favourite, although Skating Shoes is completely wonderful."
   - Kathleen (Meg Ryan) in You've Got Mail
