A Sunday Times Children's Book of the Year pick'
From the imagination of Tom Gates' multi-million-copy
bestselling creator Liz Pichon...
'Following up a best-selling series like Tom Gates is
no easy feat, but Liz Pichon does so in huge style in Shoe Wars
[...] Bursting with imagination and fabulous gadgets, Shoe
Wars is full of Pichon's characteristic warmth,
humour and quirky illustrations.' The Bookseller

This special edition is a hardback with gold foil
dust jacket AND a red shoelace bookmark
Welcome to Shoe Town - and meet brother and sister
Bear and Ruby Foot.
They are running out of time to rescue their
inventor dad from his hideous boss, Wendy Wedge.
She'll do ANYTHING to win the glitzy Golden Shoe Award
and knows that entering flying shoes is her hot
ticket to the trophy.
Flying shoes that Ruby and Bear just happen
to be hiding...
Get ready for a gadget-packed, wedge-of-your-feet adventure like
no other!
Laughs and pictures on every single page!

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.'
Financial Times
'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
