Boot and Shoe are two dogs that have done everything together since they were born. One day a squirrel starts trouble and they can't find each other. They don't want to move from each other's spots because they don't want to do anything without each other. Until they have to pee and go to their specified bush is, when they finally find each other.

Two dogs, born in the same litter, live together but have opposite but predictable preferences and routines. When a squirrel enters their lives one day, their worlds are turned upside down. It appears that chasing the squirrel has jumbled their routines. Desperate for the comfort of their counterparts, the dogs search for one another in their usual spots. However, because one is looking for the other, and vice versa, they find themselves in a seemingly endless search. That is until that finally discover each other the next day at their food dishes, a daily routine that they share with each other. This book is fun, but also carries the message that celebrates friendship and differences.

This is a simple story about two good dog friends that do everything together, eat sleep, pee except during the day one likes to sit on the front porch and one likes to sit on the back porch. This works well until one day a squirrel causes all sorts of havoc and the two dogs end up on the others porch. They sit and wait all day for the other one to return to the porch broken-hearted. They have almost given up hope in the morning when they separately go to their favorite tree to pee and lo and behold there they both are! The illustrations in the book are drawn with prismacolor pencil and gouache. They are realistic and the chase that the squirrel leads both dogs on is absolutely amazing! Readers of all ages are sure to enjoy this tale of friendship.

I found Boot and Shoe to be a very charming book about love and friendship. I really enjoyed the design of the book. The vignettes that were used for the illustrations really helped to make the book more intimate, while at the same time modeling the close friendship that these two dogs shared. I also observed that, because there were two main characters in this book, and the author wanted to highlight their similarities, she chose to illustrate their identical actions right next to each other on the same or facing page. I felt that this helped to convey the emotions of the book, whether it was a comedic part, as in when the squirrel was in the face of each dog, or a sad moment, like when Boot and Shoe each went around the house looking for each other at the same time, and therefore failing to find one another.
All in all, this book is definitely one that I would like to share, and I am interested in looking into more of Frazee's books. ( )
