The Blue Shoe: A Tale of Thievery, Villainy, Sorcery, and Shoes by Roderick Townley will be released on October 13, 2009 in the U.S.
Description: From the publisher: It was only one shoe. It fit no one. But everyone wanted it. Hap Barlo in a cell, wondering how it had all gone so wrong. The blue shoe was ruined, the girl he'd been trying to help was missing, and he'd been branded a thief - again! He would be banished to the far side of Mount Xexnax in the morning. On the bright side, now he might be able to rescue his father, who had been banished last year. No one has ever returned from Xexnax, so perhaps Hap is a tad optimistic to be dreaming of rescue. Then again, perhaps a dreamer, a doer, and a thief is just the kind of boy who could challenge this mountain - and win!
