Product description

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 BooksellerWelcome 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.’ BooktrustShoe 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

Our July 2021 Ages 9-10 Book of the Month

Our 9+ Book of the Month for July has to be Shoe Wars. We have chosen Liz Pichon’s new novel because it is perfect not only for core middle-grade readers but also for younger fans who love the fantastic and crazy illustrations and for older kids and grown-ups who are drawn into the weird and wonderful world of Shoe Town. The fully illustrated text also keeps any reluctant readers engaged, and the adventure keeps you rooting for the kids.

This new novel from the bestselling, award-winning author Liz Pichon is a standalone title in a whole new world separate from Tom Gates. Set in Shoe Town, big-bad-boss Wendy Wedge is obsessed with winning the Golden Shoe Award with the invention of flying shoes. But our star siblings Ruby and Bear are in a race against time to rescue the inventor – their dad! – and save the day. All the hilarity and crazy antics you would expect from Tom Gates, along with some super-cool gadgets, the baddest baddies and tons of shoes.
