Description

"In this witty, wise picture book, Boelts presents a kid s-eye view of a
consumer fad that rages through school at gale force." Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)
All Jeremy wants is a pair of those shoes, the ones everyone at school seems to be wearing. Though Jeremy's grandma says they don t have room for "want," just "need," when his old shoes fall apart at school, he is more determined than ever to have those shoes, even a thrift-shop pair that are much too small. But sore feet aren t much fun, and Jeremy soon sees that the things he has warm boots, a loving grandma, and the chance to help a friend are worth more than the things he wants.
