Juno Valentine and the Magical Shoes

Children's Book and Media Review, Apr 2019

Juno Valentine is searching for her favorite shoes and is running late for school. As she fumbles in the closet looking for them, she is transported into a world of shoes worn by powerful women from ancient to modern times. She tries on shoes from Egyptian ruler Cleopatra to modern sports legend Serena Williams, from Disney character Cinderella to Nobel Prize winner Marie Curie. Every pair of shoes she tries on provides her a glimpse into the lives of these defining figures in history. When she finally finds her own plain shoes, she realizes she has the ability to transform them into something just as spectacular as the other shoes she has tried on.
