Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is a nonsensical narrative about two feet that are part of the same body and have different aspirations. Lefty likes galoshes. Righty likes all kinds of shoes. When the two feet race, the race is always close. Lefty is a “sore” loser. Righty is more adventurous. The pastel watercolors show Lefty with a band aid and his leg with a patch on its blue jeans and a hole in his sock. Righty is hurt when the chair leg comes down on him because Lefty was “distracted.” Then, Righty is removed to the chair seat, and Lefty misses him. Because pictures are sometimes drawn so that readers are looking down on the feet in the picture (Righty is on the right and Lefty on the left) and, at other times, so that readers are looking at a picture of a person who is facing us (Righty is on the left and Lefty on the right), we can expect some confusion in spite of Lefty’s band aid. Libraries probably have better use for their money. Reviewer: Carlee Hallman
School Library Journal

PreS-K A slight story about two busy appendages. Though they have different likes and dislikes, Righty and Lefty (the latter has an ever-present, identifying bandage) recognize the need to cooperate. The feet belong to the same person (who is never shown in full), but are complete opposites. Righty likes to wear different types of shoes, but Lefty's first choice is always the green galoshes. At times, the odd couple cause one another grief-as when one or the other crosses the finish line first-and Righty dreams of being on vacation alone. Just like siblings, though, they rely on each other for fun, and for keeping warm at night. Large expanses of white space showcase the humorous pen-and-ink and pastel watercolors. While one foot is active and adventurous, and the other is satisfied with the status quo, the two really are best friends and incomplete without their mirror image. The third-person narrative lacks tension and a substantial plot, thereby limiting its child appeal.-Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI

Kirkus Reviews
Bad enough that Lefty wants to live a life enveloped in galoshes, but does he have to be so neurotic? Yes, when you're a pair of feet, you're pretty much stuck with the personality of the appendage beside you. Lefty, distinguishable (aside from his arch) by his personality-appropriate Band-Aid, is happiest when he's safe and dry. His general attitude? "Life is a blister." Righty, in contrast, is an adventurous sort. He loves grown-up shoes, beaches and running about. Can two such different footsies ever find a way to get along? Certainly. They may not be the same, but Lefty and Righty have a relationship that can survive everything from boo-boos to falling asleep. A truly unique method of discussing relationships, Vail's feet are a step above the rest. Cordell's understated watercolors help by lending the tale a soft, humorous tone. Consider this a love story that every man, woman, child and podiatrist can enjoy. (Picture book. 4-7)
