The author of this book, Sangmi Ko, seems to be passionate about adopting pets. The book is based on a true story about her niece. She also lists information about pet adoption in the back of the book. The book follows a young girl named Mini as she finds a lost dog wearing bright yellow booties, and she decides she wants to keep him. Eventually she realizes the owner must really miss their dog, and she returns the dog and adopts a dog of her own. I really enjoyed the style of the book. The illustrations are black and white, but some of the illustrations she adds either red or bright yellow. ( )

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

Mini finds a dog in the park wearing shoes but no collar and begs to keep him, but soon she realizes that whoever put the shoes on him loves the dog, as well.
