By Noel Streatfeild
A heart-warming story of music, family and finding a home by Noel Streatfeild, author of Ballet Shoes,
So your brother's a world-famous violinist? That's amazing! Or is it?
The Forums are a musical family, and one child, Sebastian, shines out as a prodigy. He is a brilliant violinist and when his talent is recognised, he is wanted the world over. Myra, Wolfgang (named after Mozart) and Ettie thought it was wonderful at first, but after four years of touring the world with their brilliant brother Sebastian, they've changed their minds. Now, what they long for, is a home of their own, not a hotel in Vienna or Venice or Moscow.
But to their mother and father, a life of travel is exciting - all any child could want. How can the children make the grown-ups see sense?
Noel Streatfeild was born in Sussex in 1895. She was a prolific and much-loved author, most famous for her children's books which included Ballet Shoes and the other 'Shoes' series. She was awarded an OBE in 1983.
