Shoe Trouble is the story of a little girl named Eleanor who keeps forgetting her shoes at school.

On Monday she forgets her shoes. Tuesday she forgets her gumboots. Wednesday she forgets her sandals. Thursday she forgets her slippers, but on Friday she has remembered to collect them all to take home … but what has she forgotten now?
