Blog tour: A Tale of Two Shoes

Welcome to the blog tour for A Tale of Two Shoes by Helen Haraldsen!


About the book…

They thought they'd be together forever.

They were wrong.

Shane and Shelia shoe are a pair. They were made for each other. They never expected to be separated. After all, what use is a shoe without its partner?

When Shane and Sheila find themselves all alone in the world, they think they have no purpose or value without each other.

Two shoes desperate for hope. 

For their lives to change, they'll need a helping hand.

A story that shows how new friendships help us to grow and broaden our horizons.

Readers agree that this story is a conversation starter for a range of real-life issues.

What did I think?

Awww, this is such a precious book! It is difficult to share all my thoughts without giving anything away. Let’s just say that, when I started reading, I was expecting a completely different ending.

This, however, only served to enrich my experience and it will give children, the intended readers, a different perspective on loneliness and purpose.

The beautiful illustrations by Steve Hutton delicately complement a story that centers on a difficult theme but that succeeds in handling it brilliantly.

The book is aimed at children between the ages of 5 and 8 but I know I will be enjoying with my daughter a little earlier. I can’t wait already!

About the author…

Helen is a secondary school English teacher and also runs a school library. She lives on the edge of the Lake District in Cumbria with her husband and their family of animals: horses, dogs, ducks, geese and hens.
