Boot and Shoe are from the same litter and share everything. They sleep, eat, and even pee together. The only thing they don’t share is where they spend their days. Boot is a back porch sitter and Shoe prefers the front. This is an ideal life until one day when a squirrel shows up and starts some real trouble.
The illustrations in this book are top-notch. They elevate a simple, though humorous and truly delightful, story and bring Boot and Shoe to life for the reader. All ages will revel in this comical tale of dog siblings and their unfortunate run-in with a neighborhood squirrel.
