Slippery Willie's Stupid, Ugly Shoes
by Stephanie Barmann
I am pleased to present Slippery Willie's Stupid, Ugly Shoes for it's November 1st book tour stop. Slippery Willie's Stupid, Ugly Shoes is a amusing book about how people view us and how we view ourselves. The author was able to put together a cute story that any child will love and at the same time send a message to help children see we are sometimes wrong about the way people will view us or what we wear.
Slippery Willie has a problem. He can't stop slipping and sliding on his slippery feet. Not even shoes and socks have helped him not to slide. The problem is solved when he gets special shoes. He thinks they are the ugliest things he's ever seen and is sure all the children are going to laugh at him. Once he puts them on though he is able to walk without slipping and he finds he was wrong about what people would think.
The illustrations in this book are well done and colorful. They go along with the story perfectly and make the story that much more funny. Children will love flipping through this book looking at the pictures.
I would recommend this book to people with children ages 6-10 years old. I would also like to add this would be a great book for children who have to wear something different than other kids because of special medical needs.
Great Job Mr. Peterson you've created a book that will sure to be a favorite for generations to come.
