From the Publisher:

- Provides imaginary explanations for natural occurrences.
- Contains humor.
- Discusses the importance of individuality and brother and sister relationships.
- Provides alternative possibilities for real life situations.
- Combines fantasy and real-life experiences (tying shoes, losing teeth, etc.)
- Fosters story-telling skills through familiar experiences (children can re-tell these stories very easily as the topics are meaningful to them)
- Uses vocabulary to communicate feelings and stimulate imagination.
- Discusses many emotions and feelings important to children (e.g. frustration of not being able to tie laces or feeling left out when the tooth fairy visits brother and sister.)
- Develops the ability to identify a problem and find the solution.

Review:

A boy who hasn’t mastered the art of tying his shoelaces is presented with the chance to swap them for a set of magic laces that never come undone. Of course he accepts the offer, but finds that with a little bit of practice his own laces might have been less troublesome than ones which never allow you to take off your shoes. A humorous reminder that quick-fixes are rarely the long-term solution. (Evening Echo/Irish Examiner 2005-12-01)
