Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Katie and her friends, JoJo and Pedro, need to buy new shoes. They each have a special quality that they are looking for in their shoes. Katie wants shoes with pizzazz and so she tries on pair after pair of shoes. As she searches for the perfect pair of shoes, Katie helps a teary little girl learn to enjoy the task of trying on shoes. The characters' dialogue quickly moves the plot through three chapters. There are color illustrations throughout the book. Katie is depicted as a Chinese American girl and seems to be stereotyped with round framed eyeglasses. There's a weak attempt to use multicultural characters in the story without a clear purpose. Readers will find a glossary with a pronunciation guide at the back of the book along with a few discussion questions, writing prompts, and an activity to reuse old shoes. There's a publisher's website with additional activities. This book is just one from the "Katie Woo" series. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung

Meet the Author

Fran Manushkin is the author of many popular picture books, including Baby, Come Out!; Latkes and Applesauce: A Hanukkah Story; The Tushy Book; The Belly Book; and Big Girl Panties. There is a real Katie Woo — she's Fran's great-niece — but she never gets in half the trouble of the Katie Woo in the books. Fran writes on her beloved Mac computer in New York City, without the help of her two naughty cats, Chaim and Goldy.
Tammie Lyon began her love for drawing at a young age while sitting at the kitchen table with her dad. She continued her love of art and eventually attended The Columbus College of Art and Design, where she earned a Bachelors degree in Fine Art. After a brief career as a professional ballet dancer, she decided to devote herself full time to illustration. Today she lives with her husband, Lee, in Cincinnati, Ohio. Her dogs, Gus and Dudley, keep her company as she works in her studio.
