Charming Book on an Important Subject
by Patrice Fagnant-MacArthur

Willie has a problem. He is a little boy with slippery feet. He slips everywhere, even up walls. Even his shoes and socks slide off. His mother has special shoes made for him which Willie feels are stupid and ugly. He dreads wearing them to school and fears everyone will make fun of him. By the end of the book, all of his fears have been put to rest.

Larry Peterson has woven a charming children’s book, designed to show children that it is OK to be different. The illustrations are great and add greatly to the experience of the book. Children will love it! There are also useful discussion questions to foster further conversation on the subject of being different.

A recipient of the Catholic Writer’s Guild Seal of Approval, “Slippery Willie’s Stupid, Ugly Shoes” illustrates the important belief that we are all “God’s special individual creations and God ‘don’t make no junk.'”
