Whose Shoe?

Eve Bunting, Sergio Ruzzier (Illustrator)

There's something in that tall bamboo.

Oh, my goodness! It's a shoe!


A mouse comes across a shoe and sets out to find its owner. A conscientious role model, this determined mouse asks an unlikely assortment of animals if the shoe belongs to them, hears about their own shoes, and receives a surprising reward at the end. Eve Bunting's cheerful rhymed text and Sergio Ruzzier's charmingly unique illustrations make this a delightful book to share with a young child.
