A magical adventure about a girl, a bear and some very special shoes from the bestselling creators of What the Ladybird Heard and Sugarlump and the Unicorn. Full of action and imagination, and with a delightfully unexpected ending, this gorgeous book is one to enjoy over and over again.
When Josephine leaves the shoe shop after buying some new running shoes, she hears an unusual sound – Click-click! Click-click! It's a bear with a backpack! Luckily for Josephine, her new shoes are anything but ordinary – these are magic shoes. But can they help her escape the bear when there's a mountain, a bog and even a lake in her way?
The Girl, the Bear and the Magic Shoes is an exciting adventure from the stellar picture-book partnership of Julia Donaldson and Lydia Monks. Enjoy more of their stories with Sharing a Shell, The Singing Mermaid, and The Rhyming Rabbit.
