Publisher Comments:

andlt;b andgt;Two adorably floppy dogs confront unexpected change in this endearing picture book from two-time Caldecott Honor medalist Marla Frazee.andlt;/bandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Boot and Shoe were born into the same litter, and now they live in the same house. They eat out of the same bowl, pee on the same tree, and sleep in the same bed. But they spend their days apartand#8212;Boot on the back porch because heand#8217;s a back porch kind of dog, and Shoe on the front porch because heand#8217;s a front porch kind of dog. This is exactly perfect for them. But then a crazy neighborhood squirrel arrives . . . and andlt;iandgt;everythingandlt;/iandgt; goes topsy-turvy!andlt;BRandgt;andnbsp;andnbsp;andnbsp;andnbsp; Caldecott Honor medalist Marla Frazee brings her signature wit, tenderness, and hilarious illustrations to this tale of an irresistible puppy pair.

Review:

"With restrained humor and an eye for homey detail, Frazee (The Boss Baby) introduces near-identical terriers who lead a life that is 'exactly perfect for both of them.' They share a dish, a favorite tree, and a blue cushion, but part ways to sit in opposite lookouts: 'Boot spends his days on the back porch, because he's a back porch kind of dog. And Shoe spends his days on the front porch, because he's a front porch kind of dog.' When a mischievous squirrel pesters them into a mad chase (by colloquially getting 'all up in business'), the dogs accidentally switch positions. Frazee pictures them in silhouette on either end of a green cottage, each loyally standing guard and awaiting the other's return; even when they circle their house, they walk counterclockwise and fail to meet: 'It was a long, sleepless night.' Like Elisha Cooper's recent Homer, this is an everyday dog story elevated to a thing of beauty by understated artwork and prose. Frazee's hand-lettered type and the subtle differences between the well-groomed dogs add to the homespun, local vibe. Ages 4 — 8. Agent: Steven Malk, Writers House."
