Indian Shoes


Author: Cynthia L. Smith

Illustrator: MaryBeth Timothy

Award-winning author Cynthia Leitich Smith tells six stories about a young Cherokee-Seminole boy and his grandfather in a funny and joyful chapter book. First published in 2002, this is a repackage with new jacket and interior art.

What do Indian shoes look like, anyway? Like beautiful beaded moccasins... or hightops with bright orange shoelaces?

Ray Halfmoon prefers hightops, but he gladly trades them for a nice pair of moccasins for his grampa. After all, it's Grampa Halfmoon who's always there to help Ray get in and out of scrapes—like the time they teamed up to pet sit for the whole block during a holiday blizzard!

Best-selling author Cynthia Leitich Smith writes with wit and candor about a Cherokee-Seminole boy and his grandfather, sharing all their love, joy, and humor.
