A picture book biography of the shoemaker Jimmy Choo, tracing his life from his father’s workshop in Penang to the runways of London to the halls of Kensington Palace.

On the island of Penang, Jimmy Choo is born into a family of shoemakers. At his father’s side, he learns to make all kinds of shoes—loafers, stilettos, slippers, and more.

After learning all he can at home, Jimmy immigrates to London, where he can study shoemaking by day and English by night. Nothing comes easy for newcomer Jimmy, but he works hard until he can launch his own business. At his Lucky Shoes, Jimmy specializes in shoes made just for the customer. Before long, he starts to make waves in the London fashion scene. One day, he gets a call from a very special customer—Diana, Princess of Wales, wants him to design shoes just for her. And the rest is history!

From author Patricia Tanumihardja and New York Times bestselling illustrator Derek Desierto Jimmy’s Shoes: The Story of Jimmy Choo, Shoemaker to a Princess is a fabulous and engaging picture book biography about Jimmy Choo that is sure to inspire!
