Riassunto: Shoe Shoe Baby comes from a great family of shoe-mad shoe people and owns a shoe store that is named after her. From bouncy ballet shoes to super-secret spy shoes, Shoe Shoe's got the shoe for you! With colorful, wacky illustrations and a very readable, lyrical text, the father-daughter team of Bernard and Katherine Lodge take young readers and shoe fanatics through a week's worth of silliness.
From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2-Shoe Shoe Baby comes from a long line of "shoe mad" people. Her grandma made clogs from logs and a cousin, Horseshoe Hogan, designed footwear for horses. Shoe Shoe Baby runs a shop that sells every imaginable kind of shoe. This story tells of her encounters with seven customers including the ballerina Popova, whose tired toes need slippers with springs, and five-year-old Bill, who realizes his desire to be big via a pair of stilts. Lodge's cartoon paintings are bright and busy and full of exuberant details. A clown wearing a shirt decorated with toothy grins takes a pratfall across two pages as his huge duck shoes shout out "quack," and Tex from New Mex rides off wearing a pair of bronco boots that are a weird blend of hot rod, motorcycle, and horse. The placement of the bold type often aids in moving the eye around the pages. The story is mildly amusing yet doesn't come up to the level of the wacky illustrations. The ending is rather flat-footed as Shoe Shoe dreams about a lovely barefoot island before waking up to open shop. Fun to look at but not a first purchase.
