‘Wonderful Shoes’ – Picture Book by Emma Bowd and Tania McCartney, published by Windy Hollow Books

COVER REVEAL for my debut children’s picture book, ‘Wonderful Shoes’, illustrated by award-winning kidlit creator Tania McCartney and published by Cristina Pase and her award-winning team at Windy Hollow Books. I know, I REALLY hit the jackpot with this one!

‘Wonderful Shoes’ has been such a joyful collaboration, and will be tip-tapping into bookstores in May 2021. I just can’t wait to share it with all the small children of the world, who think big shoes are just as awesome as I do!

My thanks must go to the organisers of KidLitVic, where I first had the opportunity to present ‘Wonderful Shoes’ to Cristina for a manuscript assessment in 2019. After taking on board Cristina’s feedback, I re-submitted the rhyming text to her and was subsequently offered the contract with Windy Hollow Books, and then teamed-up with the incredibly talented Tania . . . who also happens to be a fellow lover of shoes (and all things fashion).

You’ll hear more from me and Tania and Windy Hollow closer to the publication date. But for now, please excuse me while I happy dance around my kitchen in the sparkliest shoes I own . . . and there are several to choose from!
