If you still haven’t read any Backman, please, take it from me, you should. The man is awesome. I may have only read two of his books so far, but they have both been thought provoking, clever, funny, stylish, moving and poetic.
One of the poems in last week’s Tiny Tim is this one, about buying new shoes. Which reminded me of another old favourite, New Blue Shoes by Eve Rice.
It’s a simple story. Little Rebecca and her mother go shopping for new shoes.
