From the much-loved picture-book partnership comes this sparkly story of one independently minded little girl, and the unexpected, precious ways life sometimes works.

When Go Go is allowed to buy the most beautiful shoes ever, she decides she will wear them EVERYWHERE!
Even to the creek, where she and her brothers go adventuring.

But - Oh no, Go Go! - that's when a terrible thing happens . . .


Jane Godwin and Anna Walker are a winning pair: Walker's tender, beautiful illustrations are a perfect complement to Godwin's careful, gentle words. While the story is suitable for young attention spans, it is still richly textured with minute, considered detail. The resolution is charming and grounded. it exhibits classic Godwin-Walker positivity that delights while side-stepping saccharine sentiment.

Anica Boulanger-Mashberg, Books and Publishing

This is such a delightful book; I adore the illustrations and the story itself is unexpected and sweet! I highly recommend this beautiful children's picture book.

The Good Book Blog

Go Go is (a) strong, intelligent and thoughtful female lead character. The world needs more Go Gos. Anna Walker's beautiful illustrations paint a wonderful picture of this delightful little girl's world.

James, Blog of Dad

This whimsically illustrated picture book, from a best-selling duo, is a delight.

Herald Sun, Melbourne

Joyously illustrated tale of friendship, individuality and sparkly shoes.

Sunday Telegraph

Go Go and the Silver Shoes is a story that is meant to be! The universe may work in mysteriously wonderful ways, but it would certainly be expected that any child from age four will just fall in love with this one.
