Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0385383967, Hardcover)This sweet and hilarious doggy adoption tale features a pooch wearing—wait for it—bright yellow shoes.
When Mini finds a small moppet of a dog, with fluffy ears, no collar, and wearing yellow booties, she understandably wants to take it home. Despite Mom's insistence that the dog probably already has a family, Mini gets attached and is awfully proud of her new pal, who can sing, sit, and give both paws. But when the pup runs off one day at the park, Mini comes to understand how someone else out there might be missing the little guy too.
This story, by a debut author/illustrator, perfectly captures the undeniable bond between dog and owner.
"A charming tale of compassion and empathy, with a resonant message about getting your new best friend at the animal shelter." —Patrick McDonnell, creator of MUTTS
"Immensely funny.... Comedic pacing and simultaneously scrupulous and silly artwork will leave readers howling." —Kirkus Reviews, Starred
