The Book Fairies share Scholastic children's book Shoe Wars in Temple London

The Book Fairies share a great new children’s book as Shoe Wars are declared…

Liz Pichon’s new children’s paperback Shoe Wars was shared up and down the UK by book fairies!

Book fairies did up their laces to seek out incredible locations to leave copies of Shoe Wars by Liz Pichon today! We know that the finders will be delighted with their new read – it’s such a funny, fast paced book for children!

A tricky book to hide? That’s just cobblers

Fairies up and down the UK visited local shoe shops and cobblers to leave this book! The staff at these locations were so wonderful, often happy to pose, too! We left copies with the cobblers and they happily took them home for their children or other young people in their families and communities.

A little rain didn’t give us cold feet

With the rain falling over much of the UK, this didn’t stop the fairies! The fairies took great pics at statues and monuments, seeking out sheltered spots at which to leave their copies of Shoe Wars. We love a challenge and a little rain wouldn’t stop us!

Here are some of our favourite statue feet pics!

About the book:

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!

Laughs and pictures on every single page!
