Children Ages 8+ • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Joanna Scanlan's spirited delivery complements this action-packed story about shoe tycoon Wendy Wedge and her bullying son, Walter. Listeners will meet the fascinating and ingenious Foot family--Ruby, Bear, and dad, Ivor. An annual competition for the Golden Shoe Award--usually won by a Wedge--is underway. When Ruby and Bear realize their dad's flying shoes (sure to win the big prize) have been stolen, they secretly search for them. Scanlan excels with ingenious shoe-related wordplay, the Wedges' nastiness, and the Foots' earnestness. Chapters are called sizes and movingly cover serious topics such as big business vs. small business. The climax makes for a gratifying listen for all ages.
