Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Told in first person, the speaker encounters a centipede that latches onto her toe and will not let go. It crawls and wiggles until she dislodges it with a kick. The centipede seeks an escape route beneath the door but is stopped first by a broom and then by Max, the cat, the hero of the day. This cautionary tale about the reasons to wear shoes is told in rhyming verse and competently illustrated by a fourteen-year-old girl. The tone is light-hearted and apt to generate laughs. 2005, McCabe Children's Press/Kotzig Publishing, Ages 3 to 5.
