The Red Shoesis now available in paperback! All of the shoes in the shoe store are plain and dull except for one pair: the apple red shoes, just waiting to be picked.

Read from the Book

From The Red Shoes, written by Eleri Glass, illustrated by Ashley Spires:

"My feet huff, puff
like two tired trains.

So many shoes
squatting on the shelves,
white and brown, lace-ups
and boots.

My eyes hunt,
my toes tingle.
They call me from the corner,
ruby whispers,
shiny silver giggles.

I slip my hands inside
and walk them across the shelf.
Sing a tiny shoe tune.

Mom picks up the lace-ups.
I pull on her hand.
'The Red ones, Mom.'"
