Tennis Shoes is one of the wonderful 'Shoes' collection of adventures for children by Noel Streatfeild. There is no doubt about it - the Heath children have tennis in their blood. Their grandfather and father before them had been top players, and the twins are champion material. Then Nicky - cheeky, rebellious Nicky - starts to practise in secret, but talented at tennis as she is, the ambitious Nicky first has battles to win with herself - on and off the tennis court. Reissued in 'A Puffin Book' series of Puffin modern classics, this is a sharp and funny story that follows in the footsteps of Ballet Shoes , Theatre Shoes and Circus Shoes by the popular children's author Noel Streatfeild.
Noel Streatfeild, geboren 1895 in Sussex, England, war jahrelang als Schauspielerin tätig, bevor sie sich ganz ihrer zweiten Leidenschaft, dem Schreiben, widmete. Bis heute zählt sie zu den beliebtesten Kinderbuchautoren der englischsprachigen Welt.
