When Juno Valentine heads to her closet for her favorite pair of shoes, only to find that they have gone missing, the young girl is at first dismayed. Although a little plain, her shoes are just right for her. Then she falls through a magical portal at the back of her closet and gets to try on the shoes of many famous women, from Queen Elizabeth I of Britain to celebrated Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. It's a fabulous experience, and leads Juno to alter her own white shoes, when she finds herself back home... A picture-book debut from both author Eva Chen, who is head of fashion partnerships at Instagram, and illustrator Derek Desierto, a freelance artist and animator, Juno Valentine and the Magical Shoes offers a sweet little tale about taking inspiration from some of the women trailblazers of world history, as well as figures from contemporary culture. The artwork is colorful and cute, capturing the fun of Juno's magical adventure. Recommended to young fashionistas in particular, who will undoubtedly enjoy it.
