The New Shoes

Annika Thor, illustrated by Cecilia Torudd

When Daddy goes shopping and Alva isn’t allowed to go with her older sister Elin and her best friend Madde to the swimming baths, Alva sets off on a journey of discovery out in the summerhouse, where Elin and her friend are sleeping. There she finds Elin’s new trainers; they’re brilliant white, with pink laces.
As soon as Alva has dirtied them in the potato patch, she’s sorry. She runs away to the cabin in the forest, and that’s where her daddy finds her, crying with a packet of biscuits.
