Ed's Funny Feet

Ed's Funny Feet

Written by Eoin Colfer, Illustrated by Woody Fox

Ed Cooper has a problem with his big toes. Even his DIY foot-straighteners don't work and he has to wear very uncool 'correction shoes'.
Flyer 4

Flyer number 4
Ed Cooper has a problem with his big toes. The doctor says Ed needs 'correction shoes'. Disaster! Everybody will laugh at him.
Ed uses every trick he can think of not to wear the shoes. He even tries DIY foot-straighteners! But it's no use.
The shoes arrive. Ed opens the box, and the shoes are not as bad as he'd thought. They're worse!

Eoin Colfer

EOIN COLFER is the one of the world's favourite children's authors, and has written the international bestselling Artemis Fowl books. A former schoolteacher, Eoin lives in Wexford with his wife Jackie and sons Finn and Seán. He has worked in Saudi Arabia, Tunisia and Italy, as well as in Ireland. Eoin is very involved in theatre and has written several plays, which have been staged in various parts of Ireland.

His first novel, Benny and Omar, was published by The O'Brien Press in October 1998 and was an immediate bestseller. It was applauded by critics because of its comic genius. International recognition soon followed with several translations published. His second book, Benny and Babe, was published in June 1999. It became a No 1 bestseller in Ireland, knocking the famous Harry Potter out of the top spot in the Bestseller List! The Wish List is the story of Meg Finn, a young teenager who dies, but is too good for Hell and too bad for Heaven. Back on earth she has a chance of salvation if she can fulfil the Wish List of pensioner Lowrie. Mission impossible for Meg?

Eoin's writing style is incredibly diverse as he has also written for the younger readers in the O'Brien Flyers series. For the series, which is aimed at 6+ readers, he has created the wonderful character of Ed Cooper, whose misadventures appear in Going Potty, Ed's Funny Feet and Ed's Bed.

Eoin has his own website with lots of information about his books.
