A Sunday Times Children's Book of the Year 2020 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


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!

Fully illustrated throughout with Liz's hilarious doodles

Laughs 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
