Better known as Movie Shoes this story follows the three Winter children from their London home to the shores of Santa Monica in order for their father to recuperate from a nervous breakdown in the warm climate of his sister s home Like in Ballet Shoes a favorite of mine as a girl the youngest and the eldest children hold the recognizable talent and looks in the family and the middle child is prickly and difficultThe story opens with Tim Jane and Rachel eavesdropping on the doctor s conversation with their mother trying desperately to learn if their father will ever recover from the shock of accidentally killing a child who runs in front of his car The doctor s advice of sending him to a sunny climate for the winter holds little hope but a letter is sent to the children s aunt who has lived in California for many years A positive response from her inviting the whole family to visit and a surprise inheritance for their mother s friend and the children s nanny to fund the trip set the stage for an international adventureFirst there s travel on trains and an ocean liner then there are the cultural differences And then when they reach California they find their aunt is unbearable prone to taking to bed with nerves and sick headaches and unwilling to share much beyond room and board which the adults agree is still terribly generous of her Plus she seems to stand in the way intentionally or otherwise of what each child wants most out of the California trip for Rachel a chance to meet with the famed Posy Fossil and to take dance lessons for Jane a friendly dog to hang out with and for Tim a piano upon which to practiceLuckily what the children seem to learn in America is that generally its inhabitants are friendly and inclined to help you out Posy tracks Rachel down gets her an audition and takes her under her wing Aunt Cora s cook Bella helps Tim track down a piano upon which to practice and generally counsels him to keep a positive outlook on things and Jane encounters a sympathetic dog owner who also happens to be a director about to film The Secret Garden but whose star suddenly became unavailable The family s six months in the US offers up wild adventures but will these be enough in the end to keep them on this side of the AtlanticA couple notes One I bought my copy second hand and all but the first page of Chapter 16 is missing Two I believe I own this book back at my folks as Movie Shoes but was lured into buying it again because of the title difference For what it s worth Movie Shoes is the later American title It was totally the mention of the return of the Fossil sisters that grabbed me and made me buy it Three in looking into the title uestion I have learned that this is a revised and abridged version of the book I had been surprised by how casually they worked food parcels into the story Had I not readwatched 84 Charing Cross Road I certainly wouldn t have realized how long food shortages and rationing went on in England and recognized the reference Apparently some of the other things they cut referred to similar bits of British post World War II restrictionsAlthough the book wasn t nearly as good as I remember it being nor as good as Ballet Shoes remains it was still an enjoyable read I d recommend it to those who an enjoy a Pollyanna type ending to their stories

Noel Streatfeild Ò 8 Free read Free download Ç The Painted Garden ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Life is tough for the Winter family in London with little money and Dad out of work Luckily Aunt Cora comes to the rescue with an invitation to live in Cali. Wonderful read and very unexpected too I d forgotten just how great her other books are and I m so glad I gave this a chance The writing is sweet and warm and the children s adventures are full of wonder The Christmas scenes in particular really moved me and the beginning of the book about the family s first steps in America is hilarious I enjoyed this very very much and I can t wait to read and reread of her work

Summary The Painted Garden

Noel Streatfeild Ò 8 Free read Free download Ç The Painted Garden ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ne for the lead part of Mary in The Secret Garden No one's ever noticed Jane before Could this be the chance of a lifetimeAlternate Title The Painted Garden. A typical Streatfeild family feature in this book a gifted ballet dancer a talented musician and an irritable un artistic middle child The family have the chance to spend the winter with a relative in California and the middle child gets a chance to shine Family dynamics push this book forward a lovely gentle read with humour and moving moments Most of the story takes place in California with some mildly amusing scenes as they try to adjust to American culture and language and discover that children are expected to earn pocket money rather than being given it by parents One of the things I particularly like about this book is a side story about two of the sisters from Streatfield s classic Ballet Shoes I also enjoyed the children s gradual changes in outlook and motivation and the way they come to love their new environment and the people around them There are caricatures amongst the minor characters but I don t see that as a problemI very much enjoyed re reading this and would recommend it to anyone who likes children s fiction of this kind
