I was asked to review this enchanting book by Librarything.
What a lovely story for children and one of those stories boy given an old pair of Arabian shoes - the ones with the curled up toes. Of course the child is going to think what a load of rubbish- but he was wrong and thus begins adventures with interesting people along the way. These encounters have a moralistic story to tell.
I loved the fact this had a good intriguing story, things are not always as they seem.
