More praise for Shoe Wars:
'As with the Tom Gates books, every page here is dynamic
and attention-grabbing, packed with cartoons and typeface trickery.'
'An original and outrageous storyline gives plenty of scope for
absurd inventions, loathsome baddies and heroic deeds from underequipped
underdogs. This is a tale oozing creativity and packed
with pen and ink illustrations, exciting and expressive typography
and visual jokes.' Booktrust
'Shoe Wars is an exciting story with lively characters
that offer plenty of laughs [...] Like Pichon's other books, it
can be enjoyed as a funny, action-packed page-turner, but also as
a comic book of cartoons so that children can keep returning to
their favourite bits again and again.' Books for Keeps
