Welcome to the wonderful world

of Ruby Red Shoes ...

Ruby Red Shoes is a children's book character created by author and illustrator Kate Knapp. Ruby lives in a prettily painted caravan with her grandmother, Babushka Galina Galushka. Ruby is gentle and kind and cares for all living things.

Her days are spent tending to her vegetable patch, chatting to her chickens and enjoying the outdoors and sunshine.

Ruby is particularly partial to strawberry jam and peppermint tea. She is also rather fond of red shoes.

Ruby's purpose is to provide children everywhere with a kindred spirit who really sees them, nurtures them, inspires and guides them.

What people are saying about Ruby...

This is a truly beautiful book that we have completely fallen in love with. The illustrations are as adorable as the story.
~ The Ladybirds’ Adventures, UK

Ruby herself is a delightful protagonist. ‘An aware hare’ who lives consciously from day to day, enjoying everything about her simple routine, from the veg patch to her dumpling of a cuddly grandmother.
~ Life As It Is, UK

The story of ravishing rabbit Ruby is so full of whimsy and wonder that children and adults will happily abide. The pictures are dreamy and the sense of humour delightful.
~ Weekend West, AUS

As a student of pleasant companionship,
mindful existence, and living one’s best life, Ruby Red Shoes excels, paws down.

~ Publishers Weekly, US

Everything about this book asks readers to go slowly, to put aside the expected, and to savour the simplicity of the moment.
~ Kirkus, US

This is a positively charming story of the beauty all around and the knowledge of right action. If the world worked half as well as what I see in these pages, we would probably all be fine. I have to give it a 10 and will most certainly gift this one myself.
~ Indies Choice Awards, American Booksellers Association, US
