This was an adorable book. Any book with a dog/puppy as the main charactor is always going to be cute. The puppy goes through the whole story wanting different shoes for different occasions. At the end of the story, the puppy realized that his paws were all that he needs. There isn't a really strong message or theme, but it was a cute, fun book that young children, ages 5 and up, would enjoy.

Reading this book SO made me smile! Happy illustrations! Silly story! Delectable vocabulary! Best detail: at the end of the book, when Dog is so satisfied, his tongue is hanging out in EVERY PICTURE. :) For older kids, it would be fun to read this with a Lazy Jack/Juan Bobo story. ( )

Good book to use for problem identification because the dog keeps trying to find a reasonable shoe when the whole time his paws are perfect for him.

I think the students would like it because it is entertaining to them to see a dog acting as a human. ( )

Grades K-2

Dog has just finished reading Puss in Boots and loves the look of the hero's footwear. So he heads to his local shoe shop to get his own paws decked out. Unfortunately, while stylish, the boots are no good for digging up bones. Back he goes to the shoe shop to exchange them for different shoes. Each pair that is recommended by the owner is good for one aspect of Dog's busy lifestyle (digging, swimming, scratching himself, running), but doesn't work so well for the others. Finally, with the shoe shop owner's help, Dog realizes that he's had the best footwear all along. Bright and expressive illustrations will draw young readers in, and they'll enjoy discovering how Dog solves his footwear problem in the humorous exchanges between Dog and shop owner. The story wraps up with Dog enjoying Little Red Riding Hood so much that it gets him thinking about his own outerwear options. Hmmm... a sequel down the road? A great read-aloud selection.

So cute!! This is a wonderful story about a dog who goes looking for something he already has. A great way to introduce the topic: sometimes what you already have is exactly what you need. Love the illustrations! ( )

So cute

This is a silly picture book filled will doggy adventures. It is inspired by the book “Puss in Boots”. Once the dog reads “Puss in Boots”, the dog decides he wants a pair of his own. The book he read encourages the dog to go out and find his own pair for himself. I find this book to be humorous and exciting. I think this book is a good read aloud for young children.

Really cute book about a dog who reads "Puss in Boots" and believes he needs a pair of boots. After trying many different shoes the shoekeeper helps him realize that all he really needed was his own four paws. A good lesson in loving yourself and what you already have. ( )

I particularly like the illustration of Dog trying to swim in rainboots. Great book for those kids who like to wear tutus to bed, pajamas to school, snow boots in July... ( )

Dog sees the impressive Puss in Boots and decides that boots are the thing he is missing in his life. He heads off to the shoemaker, but what kind of boots are right for him? He tries many kinds and all have their strengths and weaknesses.

“’Have you got some that are better for swimming?’ he asked.

‘The best thing for swimming,’ the shopkeeper said, ‘are flippers.’

The flippers were fantastic
for swimming…
but when Dog triped to scratch,
they flip-flap-flopped around his head
in a very unsatisfying way.” ( )
