Description

Helen needs some special shoes for her aunty's wedding. She tries on all kinds of shoes at home, but some are too big and some are too small - and none of them are special sparkly shoes. So Helen and her mum take a trip to the market to see if they can find the perfect pair of shoes for Helen.

A simple and charming photographic book, introducing a first concept familiar around the world (a first shoe-shopping trip), but in an Ethiopian village setting.
