Marshall and his family live high in the attic above the laundry room. One day Marshall spies a pair of green high-tops that one of the children in the house owns. He thinks they’re really nifty and wishes he could have a pair just like them.
After begging and pleading with his family, he finally receives them as a birthday gift. But the sneakers don’t give him the results he expected.
Marshall and His Green High-tops is a cute story that reminds us all that we need to be very careful what we wish for. And illustrator Lorena Pugh has created a charming little mouse family in bright vibrant color. While we may think we know best, sometimes things just don’t work out the way we want them to.
