This isn't a new book. It was released in 2008 but I loved it as soon as I saw it. The bright colors caught my attention and then the boots all lined up in order looked just like my house, only neater. The little boots reminded me of when my kids were younger and they wore their boots everywhere! Of course cowboy boots were the preferred style because they made lots of noise on a hardwood floor and came in really handy when you were putting on the batman costume. The rain boots were good too because they not only looked stylish but also meant that some good puddles were nearby.
Besides being a great cover this was also a favorite book of mine last year. I was lucky enough to receive a copy of my own as a gift. If you enjoy a story about neighbors (good and bad), suburbia, secrets, friendships and loyalty with a good dose of humor and tears then this is a good book for you. Give it a try and enjoy!
