Meet the Author Storytime with Marla Frazee - Boot & Shoe
Colfax Avenue: Caldecott Honor medalist Marla Frazee, illustrated many acclaimed picture books, including All the World by Liz Garton Scanlon, which received a 2010 Caldecott Honor. She will read and sign her new book Boot & Shoe (Simon & Schuster). Two adorably floppy dogs confront unexpected change in this endearing picture book, which brings Frazee’s signature wit, tenderness, and hilarious illustrations to this tale of an irresistible puppy pair.
Praise for Boot & Shoe:
★“There is genius in this tale’s simplicity and Frazee’s understated text, repetitive language, sentence structure, and perfect comic timing play the heartwarming humor to the hilt. The pencil-and-gouache artwork, set against creamy French vanilla backdrops, blends precise lines with fluid motion, and the muted colors subtly mirror the narrative’s restraint and changing moods. The snow-white pooches, with their black button noses and eyes hidden by furry fringe, are true charmers, and their emotions are masterfully conveyed through eloquent body language. A dog-lover’s delight and tender ode to friendship.”~School Library Journal, August 2012, ★ starred review
