The author of Ballet Shoes tells her story well and creates real flesh and blood boys and girls. This is for somewhat younger readers, and particularly for those who are interested in tennis. The story of a doctor's family, limited in funds, but with boundless ambition. The twins are launched by their grandfather as tennis players, only to find that the trying younger sister has the makings of a champion. So the whole family sets to work to make a tennis player of her and to knock her ego. Amusing -- human -- original. English, but not oppressively so.
