A beautiful and sensitive exploration of the experience of child poverty from leading author/illustrator, Tom Percival, for fans of Boy at the Back of the Class and Julia and the Shark.
Will has the wrong shoes – he's always known it but doesn't know how to change it. Navigating the difficulties of home and school when you feel you stick out is tough, but finding confidence with the help and empathy of friends can be all you need to see the way.
Tom Percival had an unconventional childhood in a remote and beautiful part of South Shropshire and these formative years are almost certainly what first got him interested in writing and drawing. After trying a few cities on for size, he decided that deep down he had always been a country boy and now he lives on the edge of Rodborough Common in Gloucestershire with his girlfriend and their two sons. He is the author-illustrator of many much-loved picture books including Perfectly Norman and Ruby's Worry (Bloomsbury) and The Sea Saw and The Invisible (Simon & Schuster), and also writes and illustrates young fiction.
