Review: Go Go and the Silver Shoes

When you've got three big brothers, you soon get used to wearing their hand-me-downs. And Go Go does it with great flair.

But when she's allowed to buy the most beautiful, sparkly, new silver shoes, Go Go is determined to wear them everywhere, even on a picnic that weekend.

Poor Go Go. What can she do with just one shoe? Go Go handles the loss with her usual flair, which leads to an unexpected discovery and a new friend.

Anna Walker and Jane Godwin fit together like two beautiful, sparkly silver shoes, and once again they've conjured picture book magic with this endearing tale of a little girl with great spunk.

It's about the everyday stuff kids have to deal with: siblings, mothers they should have listened to, mean girls and lost treasures. But it's also about those glorious, serendipitous moments that sneak up on us and reveal themselves like gifts.

Stunning prose and exquisite illustrations are blended with quiet moments of white space and gentle emotion to make this another memorable treasure from a powerhouse partnership.
