The Lovereading4Kids comment
When Selina gets a parcel containing a beautiful dress and a pair of stunning shoes she is delighted. But, when can she wear them? It is war time and there are'nt any opportunities for such things. She and her cousins decide to put on a show. It's the perfect place for dressing up and dancing. A classic story of a family making play at a difficult time.

Second world war. Girl gets gorgeous frock and shoes from relatives in America – yay! Nowhere to wear them – boo! ‘I know’ say cousins, ‘let’s organize a huge pageant involving the whole town, just so you can wear your finery.’ And that’s exactly what they do!
