Mini finds a dog in the park wearing shoes but no collar and begs to keep him, but soon she realizes that whoever put the shoes on him loves the dog, as well.
I’m not the biggest fan of pet books in general, but this one takes a fresh spin on it. The main character finds (and immediately loves) a dog wearing shoes–which means it must be a dog that someone else loved first. The story was upbeat, thoughtful, and interesting. I particularly enjoyed the illustrations–black and white, with only select pops of color.
Sangmi Ko makes her picture book debut with <i>A Dog Wearing Shoes, </i> which is based on a true story. Her niece once found a lost dog with shoes on, and after returning him to his owner, she adopted a dog named Ray. Sangmi lives and works in Seoul, South Korea, with two adopted dogs, White and Malti.
