Gogo, Shepherd's old granny, is scared of shopping in the big city - all those mad cars and the traffic lights with the little green man just mixes her up. So Shepherd goes with her and helps Gogo buy what she needs, and on the way home he gets a present - the first new shoes he has ever had.

Niki Daly's expressive watercolours highlight all the points that his text merely hints at: from the elderly Gogo's smiling love for her grandson to the boy's touching care and concern for someone so much older than he is. This picture book is a simple story about a universally shared experience and has already become a classic in its own time. (Julia Eccleshare 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up)
Niki Daly has won many awards for his exuberant work. His groundbreaking Not So fast Songololo (1986), winner of a U.S Parent's Choice Award, paved the way for post-apartheid South African children's books. Since then, he has been published across the globe and has visited and presented talks in several countries. Among his many Frances Lincoln books, Once Upon a Time was an Honor Winner in the US Children's Africana Book Awards of 2004. Jamela's Dress - first in the Jamela series - was another milestone book, chosen by the ALA as a Notable Children's Book and by Booklist as one of the Top 10 African American Picture Books of 2000, and winning both the Children's Literature Choice Award and the Parent's Choice Silver Award. Niki lives with his wife, the illustrator Jude Daly, in Mowbray, a bustling Cape Town suburb.
