I liked this book. A mysterious blue shoe is in a cobbler's shop. Everyone who sees it wants it. And just what is happening on the mysterious mountain that overlooks the village? ( )

This story enthralled me up to the last two chapters. I don't really know what happened, but it seemed as though some important bits were left out and that there was a too quick resolution to the plot. I suspected the story was headed in that direction, but the wrap-up was anti-climactic. ( )

You won’t be able to put this book down! This is an exciting tale about a 13 year old boy that takes on a mountain (and all the rumors of evil that occurs there) to try to save his father. As he learns more about life on the mountain, his mission becomes more than he thought possible. This is an enjoyable read you won’t forget!

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375856005, Hardcover)

It was only one shoe. It fit no one. But everyone wanted it.

Hap Barlo sits 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!

First edition will be printed in blue ink!
