ADIL ALI’S SHOES

ADIL ALI’S SHOES

ABOUT THE BOOK

Everybody 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.

SNAPSHOT REVIEW

  • 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.

CONCLUSION

A beautifully told story, with the perfect balance of words and pictures. Anyone who’s ever had a holey old pair of super-comfortable shoes will immediately identify with it!

“For a teacher or librarian faced with dozens of books to read, a good book review website is as essential as maps are for geographers.”

“Indian children’s books rarely get the kind of publicity they deserve in the popular or social media. Websites like Goodbooks plug the gap by not letting a single Indian children’s book of merit slip through the cracks. Most people would not even know about the books available in the market if not for a resource like this.”
