From School Library Journal
reS-Gr 1-A young mouse tries on the shoes of various members of her family. On the first page she is wearing "great big clompy shoes" that make the sound "glump, glomp, clomp!" Readers lift the flap to find that they are "Daddy's shoes!" Next she wears tippy, red high-heels that make the sound "clop, clip, clap!" These are her mother's shoes. And so it goes. This well-written story features sounds and rhymes that will entertain youngsters and have them chiming right along. The pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations feature bright colors and a cartoon style. The artwork adds comic details to the story. The images of the mouse gleefully dancing, hopping, and prancing her way through the book will also be appreciated. A shoo-in for toddler time.
