The Red Shoes is 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. The little girl knows that they are the shoes for her, but can she convince her mom? This cheerful tale is matched with charming illustrations that depict the fashions of the 1960s.
