About the Book: 
Willie Wiggles hates his slippery feet. He just slips, slides and spins all over the place. But what he hates even more are the special shoes that have been made for him that will help him to walk just like all the other kids. Willie thinks that they are the "stupidest, ugliest shoes in the whole world." Discover how sometimes we worry about things about ourselves when actually there is nothing to worry about in the first place.

Quickie Review:
Slippery Willie's Stupid, Ugly Shoes by Larry Peterson is just so adorable. I highly recommend this one to anyone that needs a fresh, new and cute story for their children. This one made me laugh out loud as I shared it with my six year old brother. We both enjoyed the book's eccentricity and illustrations. Children of any age could definitely enjoy this one and take away a little lesson too- that it is okay to be different.

Your children will love this one, check it out! 


  1. Thanks Julia for the great review. I'm glad the antics of Slippery Willie brought a smile to your face, and I'm so glad that your 6-year-old brother enjoyed the book as well. We're thrilled that you gave Slippery Willie 4 out of 5 robots!

    Thanks again for hosting a stop on the blog tour. We appreciate it!

  2. Hi Julia---I know it has been more than three months since your review was posted and I think I owe you an apology. It seems I did not respond and say THANK YOU for the kind words and for taking the time to do the review. I do not take these reviews for granted and I always try to respond. I guess I missed on this one. Sorry and THANKS AGAIN--Best wishes Larry Peterson
