A magical adventure about a girl, a bear and some very special shoes, perfect for listening to at home, in the car, at bedtime – or any time at all!
When Josephine leaves the shoe shop after buying some new running shoes, she hears an unusual sound – Click-click! Click-click! A bear with a backpack is following her! Luckily for Josephine, her new shoes are anything but ordinary – these are magic shoes. But can they help her escape the bear when there's a mountain, a bog and even a lake in her way?
