  • 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

    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.’ 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
