A glittering magical adventure about a girl, a bear and some very special shoes from the bestselling creators of What the Ladybird Heard and Sugarlump and the Unicorn . When Josephine leaves the shoe shop after buying some new running shoes, she hears an unusual sound - Click-click! Click-click! It's a bear with a backpack! Luckily for Josephine, her new shoes are anything but ordinary - these are magic shoes. But can they help her escape the bear when there's a mountain, a bog and even a lake in her way? The Girl, the Bear and the Magic Shoes is an exciting adventure from the stellar picture-book partnership of Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks, creators of What the Ladybird Heard . Full of action and imagination, and with a delightfully unexpected ending, this gorgeously glittery book is one to enjoy over and over again. Enjoy all the stories from Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks: Sharing a Shell, The Princess and the Wizard, The Rhyming Rabbit, The Singing Mermaid, Sugarlump and the Unicorn, Princess Mirror-Belle and the Dragon Pox, What the Ladybird Heard, What the Ladybird Heard Next and What the Ladybird Heard on Holiday .

We received this book this morning and my daughter has asked me to read it 3 times already and she’s sat and looked through all the pictures and felt the pages as the trees are bumpy, the clouds have bumps to make the swirls and the shoes have glitter coming off them. A lovely tale that children can join in with pit a pat went Josephine’s shoes. My daughter enjoyed joining in a lot. The pages are full of detail and are lovely and bright so great for young children. My daughter also spotted the Grufulo on one of the wellies which made her day. A great book.

A fun story about a girl who has a new pair of shoes which enabled her to climb up mountains, ski, swim and walk through mud whilst trying to run away from a bear. She soon discovered the bear wasn’t trying to chase her after all and they enjoyed the adventure together home. 

We enjoyed the story and my daughter said she liked the girl and the bear. Whilst I enjoyed reading it I prefer the Julia Donaldson stories which rhyme. However, my daughter really enjoyed it and stayed attentive throughout. I think in time she will make the sounds with me.
