** spoiler alert ** First entry in a delightful series (now sadly out of print) about Drina Adams, a young girl growing up with her grandparents in tiny Willerbury, UK. Through her friend Jenny Pilgrim she unexpectedly finds she is irresistably drawn to learn ballet, but her Grandmother firmly refuses to allow it. Through secrecy and determination, Drina learns to dance despite her Grandmother's hostility, and eventually discovers the stunning reason for it. Charming book, although the minor characters are more convincingly written than Drina is. Estoril is one of several pen names for Mabel Esther Allan.
