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.

A young boy agrees to accompany his elderly grandmother on a shopping trip, but he finds himself constantly having to wait for the old woman to catch up, which he finds annoying. However, his patience is rewarded when he is given a treat for his troubles.Review:
Full of understated charm. ( The Ultimate First Book Guide)
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)
