KIRKUS REVIEW

Sometimes a shoe just isn’t big enough for a whole family, even a miniature one, especially when said family consists of a mother, five children and a multitude of pets (including a cow). So when Mama says, “Get me out of this shoe,” they all set out to locate a new home. Adventures are in store (a trek over a clothesline, a sleeping snake, a swim through a creek) as well as some misbegotten attempts at a new abode (a rat-infested log, a smelly barrel, an unstable birdhouse) until the family comes face-to-face with a tremendous giant—eek!—who just happens to be friendly as well as the possessor of the perfect solution. The rollicking rhyme gives a nod to this and other nursery tales, and Litzinger’s stylized paintings of the freckled, ginger-haired heroes provide a fresh, wee perspective. A fun-filled romp bound to become a favorite. (Picture book. 4-7)
