Praise For My Kicks: A Sneaker Story!

" Delightful illustrations...this cool kid’s adventures offer general appeal, especially to parents of children who are attached to worn-out shoes."


"The text is lively—in prose form, but with a bouncy hip-hop beat that reflects the boy’s attitude about his active life in his beloved shoes. Energetic
ink-and-watercolor illustrations place the boy in a pleasant urban setting and are well matched to the text. A wonderful ode to shoes, old and new."
