ABOUT THE BOOKEverybody likes Adil Ali but nobody likes his shoes. They are old and worn, patched and sewn. His friends pool in to buy him a shiny new pair for Eid, but Adil Ali and his old, favourite shoes are not so easily parted.
- A delightful picture book with an engaging story and eye-catching illustrations.
- The writing is clean and lucid, and the story told in evocative words, which capture the sights, sounds, smells and bustle of the everyday life of Adil Ali marvellously.
- Niloufer Wadia’s rich watercolour illustrations fill all the details that remain unsaid.
- Readers of all ages (yes, even adults) will love to pore over the detailed artwork that captures small-town life. In addition, the story can be read out, read with or enjoyed solo.
