"An entertaining look-and-play book about animals and their feet"--P.  of cover.
Kirkus ReviewsNo set of feet is exactly alike. Mix-and-match pictures of seven animals (and one insect) and their feet create some unusual combinations. Thick, black lines delineate each animal against a contrasting background. The bottom third of the drawing occupies a separate, split page, allowing to swap an animal's feet for a different set of pins. The left side features a solid-colored background for the text; a new color introduces each character. Rather ho-hum dialogue begins with the appropriate sound, then discusses another attribute, ending by drawing readers' attention to the feet. "BAAA, says the sheep. / 'See my warm woolen fleece! / My feet are small hooves. / Can you find me some different feet?' " The results may elicit some giggles; the stocky body of the thundering elephant joined with the ladybug's appendages or frog's flippers can't help but amuse. Companion titles Funny Tails and Funny Ears follow a similar set-up; sturdy flaps suit these particular puzzles. The ability to play matchmaker provides some solid entertainment. (Board book. 18 mos.-3)
