The Red ShoesBook - 2008
A little girl needs new shoes. There are hundreds of shoes in the shoe shop, but all of them are in the same plain, dull colours - all except for one pair of bright red shoes. The little girl knows that these are the ones for her, but can she convince her mum and the sceptical shoe lady? Glass' simple, poetic text and Spires' charming watercolour pictures combine to create a beautiful book about how bright, colourful things can lift people's spirits. As the story is set in the 1960s, the illustrations carefully chronicle the fashion of that period.
