When Floyd’s kite gets stuck in a tree, he throws up his shoe to try and dislodge it. But when this gets stuck, too, it’s not long before his other shoe follows it and then all kinds of other odd things find themselves thrown up in an attempt to knock other things down. Small children and parents alike will delight in this funny new picture book from the distinctive writer and illustrator Oliver Jeffers, who has previously won both the Smarties Book Prize and the Blue Peter Book Award for Lost and Found, a story about a boy and his penguin friend.
