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
