More praise for Shoe Wars:

with the Tom Gates books, every page here is dynamic and attention-grabbing,
packed with cartoons and typeface trickery.’ Financial

‘An original and outrageous storyline
gives plenty of scope for absurd inventions, loathsome baddies
and heroic deeds from underequipped underdogs. This is a tale oozing
creativity and packed with pen and ink illustrations, exciting
and expressive typography and visual jokes.’ Booktrust

‘Shoe Wars is an exciting story with lively characters
that offer plenty of laughs […] Like Pichon’s other books,
it can be enjoyed as a funny, action-packed page-turner, but also
as a comic book of cartoons so that children can keep returning
to their favourite bits again and again.’ Books for Keeps
