There's something in that tall bamboo.
Oh, my goodness! It's a shoe!
A mouse comes across a shoe and sets out to find its owner. A conscientious role model, this determined mouse asks an unlikely assortment of animals if the shoe belongs to them, hears about their own shoes, and receives a surprising reward at the end. Eve Bunting's cheerful rhymed text and Sergio Ruzzier's charmingly unique illustrations make this a delightful book to share with a young child.
Eve Bunting was the beloved, award-winning author of more than two hundred and fifty books for young people, including the Caldecott Medal-winning Smoky Night, illustrated by David Diaz, The Wall, Fly Away Home, and Train to Somewhere.
Sergio Ruzzier has illustrated a number of picture books, some of which he also wrote. Italian by birth, he lives in Brooklyn.
"Ruzzier's pen, ink, and watercolor artwork uses spare details and white space to draw readers' eyes...An enjoyable read-aloud." —Kirkus "An enjoyable read-aloud, either in a group setting or one-on-one." —Booklist —
