Larry Peterson Unveils His Children’s Book, Slippery Willie’s Stupid Ugly Shoes

Writing Daze has the pleasure of spotlighting children’s author Larry Peterson with his first children’s book, Slippery Willie’s Stupid Ugly Shoes. Larry is on virtual book tour with Tribute Books during the month of March.

Slippery Willie Synopsis:
Willie Wiggles hates his slippery feet. He just slips, slides and spins all over the place. But what he hates even more are the special shoes that have been made for him that will help him to walk just like all the other kids. Willie thinks that they are the "stupidest, ugliest shoes in the whole world."

Discover how sometimes we worry about things about ourselves when actually there is nothing to worry about in the first place.
