Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Singer (City Lullaby) and Nakata (Don't Step on the Sky) extol the joys of shoe shopping in a compendium of rhymed verses accompanied by a dizzying display of possibilities, from loafers to hiking boots, waders, Chinese slippers and jellies-to name a tiny fraction of the footwear in the watercolor spot illustrations. After opening with an ode to her purple sneakers ("You purple sneakers.../ I've loved with all my heart./ We walked, we danced, we ran for miles./ Too bad you fell apart"), the protagonist leads readers through the myriad choices in a shoe store Imelda Marcos would have adored. Shoe lovers will want to linger on each page to make their own selections from generous assortments Nakata renders: chimp and hippo bedroom slippers, polka-dotted turquoise galoshes,ginghamsneakers. Occasional vignettes portray the young shopper imagining herself wearing the shoes in question. The busy pages have the breathless feel of a shopping spree; the closing full-page image is an exultant finale. Ages 3-up. (June)

K-Gr 2- A little girl mourns the "death" of her favorite purple sneakers, but then it's off to the store for some new ones. She explores the merits of different kinds of shoes, from Mary Janes ("Why not Saras? Amys? Sues?") to moccasins ("Walk like a deer, these moccasins say./You can clomp like a cow any old day") to waders ("Does anyone make rubber waders/the size for almost second-graders?") to T-straps ("They taught me my first letter of the alphabet"), with many in between, until she finally settles on chartreuse high-tops. The shopping expedition is related through a series of 29 linked poems, and the rhythms are witty and always boppy. Nakata's vibrant, stylized watercolors are a perfect match for the bouncy text. With curricular connections to shoes and poetry, this book is a natural fit for classrooms.-Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, MD

Kirkus Reviews
Singer weaves a collection of fanciful poems into a clever salute to shoes. When her adored sneakers deteriorate, a young girl must go shopping for new footwear. However, the sheer abundance of options at the store spurs an effervescent outpouring detailing the delights of shoes. The format of the tale strings together a chain of poems to create a cohesive narrative, neatly using bridging phrases in a larger display type to move the story along. Her sassy poems offer readers a sprightly sampling of forms, as the gloriousness of shoes is explored through limericks, jaunty rhymes and a splendidly keen haiku about "Moccasins." Nakata's watercolor illustrations are imbued with a suitable joie de vivre, which is complemented by her palette of fresh colors. This sparkling tale serves as a fun introduction to poetry as well as a paean to the undeniable appeal of new shoes. (Picture book/poetry. 4-8)
