LoveReading View on Tennis Shoes

A wonderfully sharp and funny story by one of the 20th century’s most enduring authors.  The story may be set in a vanished world but to children of now they will still enjoy finding out about life in a bygone era and learn too how success is more often down to determination and the will to succeed rather than necessarily talent.
