Josephine has some new running shoes. But will they be able to save her from a bear?

“With… endearing humour and addictive wordplay, this is a superbly packaged book for sharing at school, home or nursery” Lancashire Evening Post

Julia says ...

When I was writing songs for children’s television I came up with one about different types of footwear, and that’s what gave me the idea for this book. The little girl in the story is named after one of my grandchildren.

Here is a picture of Lydia and me signing the book at the Edinburgh International Book Festival.
