Who doesn't love a good shoe? Especially when they can be found in places other than the feet.
If we look around us, perhaps we can see a boot, a mule, a curly slipper--hidden in the everyday objects we see.
The head of a dog. Three crows flying. A sultan. A flock of geese. If we open our imagination, we might be able to see more than we ever dreamed.
Beautiful, black-lined illustrations are flooded with glorious colour, as is the Ungerer way, and subtleties most deliciously abound. Scant text and a request to suspend belief are all it takes to fall into page after page of wonderful imagery.
A must for picture book collectors and for the expansion of the imagination of children.
