It's Jamela's birthday, and she and Mama are off to buy some new shoes.
As soon as Jamela sees the Princess Shoes with their sparkly buckles and little satin bows, she falls in love with them, but Mama points out that she'll have to wear the shoes for school too, so a sad Jamela ends up with sensible black shoes.
Alone in her room, Jamela tries her best to make the shoes look princessy with beads, glitter and glue.
She only succeeds in making Mama very angry, but a lady called Lilly thinks Jamela's decorated shoes are fabulous.
