MY SNEAKERS/Pas de pitié pour les baskets

A light-hearted exploration of a social phenomenon: the tyranny of brands and appearances in the playground.


When Joseph’s old pair of sneakers gets torn, it’s the best day of his life! Because all he wants is a pair of Mike Airs. But when his mum comes home, she hands him a brand new pair of HORRIBLE sneakers with a logo he has NEVER heard of before. Could Joseph feel more miserable and betrayed? How will he EVER get over this? Discover an eight-year-old’s life through his eyes, and all the little things that are important to a boy that age; wearing the right sneakers, and the shame if you don’t. As always, Olivier Tallec’s talented, expressive and simply gorgeous illustrations conjure up lots of emotions.
