The Red Shoes
Excerpt

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.'"
