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

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.'
'SHOE WARS is an exciting story with lively characters that

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
