Description

The brand new, laugh-out-loud, spectacular, stand-alone story from multi-million-copy bestselling author, Liz Pichon.

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.'
