Did your mother ever force you to wear ugly brown shoes, with laces and rubber soles that squeaked when you walked? You know the kind....."practical shoes". Worse still, did your best friend show up the next day with the very shoes you coveted? This book was right on the mark for me....I had to wear horrid Buster Brown shoes with thick laces...and white anklets to boot. No la-di-da shoes for this girl! The only redeeming factor was that the soles were so thick and strong they were GREAT for roller skating, the clamps held on beautifully! But I too saw a pair of la-di-da shoes that I longed for and they were black patent leather with sparkly toes....some coincidence! I had no trouble illustrating this one, it was very close to my heart.
