Boot and Shoe are as close as a pair of dogs can be (sleeping in the same bed, eating from the same dish) except for one thing. By day, Boot is a back porch kind of dog and Shoe is a front porch kind of dog, and that’s just the way they like it. Passing their time on their respective porches, the dog brothers have pretty good lives.
Enter the squirrel, a troublemaker who turns things upside down for the two confused pooches. When their daily routine is thrown into chaos, how will Boot and Shoe make things right again?
Caldecott Honor winner Marla Frazee has written and illustrated an adorable romp that perfectly captures the comedy of Boot and Shoe’s topsy-turvy situation. Her spare drawings are at once simple, expressive, and giggle-inducing—younger readers will eat them up!
