The new laugh-out-loud, spectacular adventure from multi-million-copy
bestselling creator of TOM GATES, Liz Pichon.
Welcome to Shoe Town - and meet Ruby and Bear
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!


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
'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
'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
