I love Jane Godwin and Anna Walker's picture book partnership - they go go so well together (see what I did there)?

And Go Go is no exception.

Go Go is a girl who dares to be different and is proud of it. She shrugs off the disdain of the snotty-nosed school bully and bravely defies her mother's good advice.

Go Go is also someone who has to learn her lessons the hard way.

But she doesn't sulk or bemoan her fate. She champions inclusiveness, belonging and sharing...and we all love her for it.

Go Go is so delightful. I love everything about her—her cheerful acceptance of wearing her brothers’ hand-me-downs, her couldn’t-care-less attitude about mean girls’ opinions, her adventuresome heart and derring-do, and most of all, her love of sparkly, impractical, completely inappropriate footwear.

My favourite moment in the book is when Go Go is grumpy and shouts at her mother’s ‘I told you so’. Because haven’t we all been there? Jane Godwin eloquently captures that horrible feeling of self-i
Go Go and The Silver Shoes by Jane Godwin and Anna Walker is an adorable picture book about favourite belongings, bad decisions, lost items and learning to share.

Go Go is a fiercely independent little girl who walks to the beat of her own drum. With three older brothers, and all their hand me down clothes, she has learnt to embrace her own style and second hand clothing. When given the most amazing pair of silver shoes that she has ever laid eyes on, she never wants to take them off. Even when v

Beautiful cut out illustrations. I loved the way the sparkly shoes ‘pop’ on the cover. Great story about a lost shoe and lessons on disappointment, having strong sense of self and friendship. I felt warm inside.

A book about a girl who ends up getting new silver shoes. She loves them as she doesn't normally get new clothes/things. She, however, ends up loosing the shoe but a new friend finds it and they, together, wear odd shoes to school everyday. ...more

I’m curious as to why the title changed to Sadie for the US version...cute story about a lost, then found, shoe.
