Roscoe Riley Rules #6: Never Walk in Shoes that Talk by Katerine Applegate, illustrated by Brian Biggs
The newest fad in town are Walkie-Talkies, shoes that have function allowing its wearers to communicate with others who are wearing the shoes.
Sounds neat right? EVERYONE in Roscoe's class wants a pair, unfortunately there are limited pairs available. Which makes them even more desired!
Two kids in Roscoe's class scores some, and though Roscoe asks her parents nicely, no luck. Well, that is until some show up in the mail! Roscoe is suddenly one of the most popular kids in class.
But Roscoe's best friend feels left out, and Roscoe helps to destroy his "Ruff and Tuff" shoes, since Roscoe's father says he has "Destructo Feet."
Can you figure out how Roscoe landed in time out?
What I Thought:
Super fun book! It reminded me of the many fads that found its way to my school as a child...slap bracelets, paint splattered jeans, crimped hair...
This is a story that everyone can relate to in one way or another!
This is another solid story in the Roscoe Riley series.
