All the kids in school have a pair of Rainbow Boots - well, all of them except Denzil! So he pretends that his are being customised and soon he's trapped in a web of lies. But are the Rainbow Boots really worth all this hassle? A hilarious school comedy from popular writer Chris Powling with illustrations from the brilliant Jim Field.
