Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A little girl needs new shoes. There are hundreds of shoes in the shoe shop, but all of them are in the same plain, dull colours - all except for one pair of bright red shoes. The little girl knows that these are the ones for her, but can she convince her mum and the sceptical shoe lady? Glass' simple, poetic text and Spires' charming watercolour pictures combine to create a beautiful book about how bright, colourful things can lift people's spirits. As the story is set in the 1960s, the illustrations carefully chronicle the fashion of that period.

A young girl and her mother go shopping for shoes, and the girl picks out a red pair.

<opt> <anon I1="BLANK" I2="BLANK">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.'"
