Editorial Reviews

Review

Inspired by the story “Puss in Boots,” Dog decides that he needs some splendid boots of his own, so he trots off to his local shoe shop to purchase a pair. While the boots are quite handsome, they are not particularly well-suited for digging, so Dog brings them back. Galoshes are great for digging, but not so much for swimming, so... The very appealing illustrations, replete with liveliness, warmth and charm, show Dog as he enthusiastically tries out a variety of footwear options and the ever-patient shopkeeper as he makes helpful suggestions and maintains an unusually generous return policy. After Dog’s failed experiments with the original boots, some galoshes, flippers, high heels and skis, he returns again, asking for “…something that’s good for digging and swimming and scratching and running. Oh, nice and furry too.” Could it be that Dog may already have what he needs? After getting an answer—and having an extremely gratifying romp—Dog returns home to start a new book, this one about a girl with a striking red hood. Uh oh! Children will identify with Dog’s good-natured struggle through trial and error, fall in love with the evocative and funny illustrations and laugh out loud at the satisfying ending. A truly enjoyable selection and a nice follow-up to a favorite fairy tale, just right for reading aloud. (Picture book. 3-6 (Kirkus Reviews)

This creative new tale will have children, students, and adults laughing out loud. Great for a class read-aloud, or sharing with an individual child.

After reading Puss in Boots, dog really wants a fine pair of boots. The dog tries all sorts of boots, shoes, even flippers. The story line is somewhat familiar but with a really cute twist. This book would be a great story to start a writing prompt, because it will give students ideas to build their own stories. A must-have for homes and classrooms.

I don't know who loves the story more, me or my five year old! I love the illustrations and it is a nice light read. Perfect for the night when you need to read a good book that doesn't have too many pages. The message in the story is to just be happy with what you got, and indeed my daughter is quite with [the book]she got!

Dog sees the impressive Puss in Boots and decides that boots are the thing he is missing in his life. He heads off to the shoemaker, but what kind of boots are right for him? He tries many kinds and all have their strengths and weaknesses.

"'Have you got some that are better for swimming?' he asked.

`The best thing for swimming,' the shopkeeper said, `are flippers.'

The flippers were fantastic
for swimming...
but when Dog triped to scratch,
they flip-flap-flopped around his head
in a very unsatisfying way."
