Dog in Boots by Greg Gormley

After reading the story "Puss in Boots," Dog decides he could do with some fancy footwear, too. However, each type of show he tries is only good for one activity. What's a dog to do?

What I thought: A fun story. Dog is a lovable character. I love that his quest for boots was inspired by a story. The illustrations are bright and colorful. They suit the playful, fast-paced story well. My favorite illustration is Dog swimming with rubber boots on. He looks so mad! Dog in Boots had a great ending. I hope there will be another book about Dog.
