Joy’s Sneakers by Leila Nabih

I started working on Joy’s Sneakers at the end of 2016 . It was a long winded project that has changed a lot over time. I have revised the text more often than i care to remember, and have done numerous sketches and picture book dummies to finally settle on something i feel confident about. It will be published at the end of 2017.


If you love sneakers ( the shoes not the candy) and cats, it’s a book you will probably enjoy.


Joy and her little ginger cat, Sneakers, are the best of friends. They do everything together. One morning, Joy is trying to choose the right pair to wear, but she has too many to chose from. She feels lost and looks at her best friend for help.

A quirky and whimsical picture book with a play on words, a funny hook, simple and unique illustrations done in a classical style, Joy’s Sneakers is sure to please babies and young readers with its funny ending, and will encourage them to get creative when they make choices.
