Because I am unashamedly in love with the movie You’ve Got Mail, I am, once again, bringing it to light here at The Literary Wife. Check out my previous mention here. Number 65 on our Top 100 Children’s Books list, Ballet Shoes, is also mentioned in my favorite movie. During Kathleen Kelly’s (played by Meg Ryan) visit to the “big bad chain store,” she overhears a customer asking about the Shoe books. After realizing the store employee has no idea what the customer is talking about, Kathleen tearfully interjects and lists off her favorites of Noel Streatfeild’s famous series. For your viewing pleasure this time around, here is a short clip from the beginning of the film.
