Newly adopted from the animal shelter, Shoe Dog can't wait to begin his new life filled with nose kisses, tummy rubs, bedtime snuggles -- and plenty of tempting shoes to chew! His new owner, however, is not so happy about her destroyed footwear. Can Shoe Dog learn to resist the rustle of a shoebox, or will his mischief drive the new friends apart? Drawn as a single squiggly line, Shoe Dog exudes the springy, barely-contained energy of an exuberant puppy, while the softly shaded colors of his world reinforce the gentle, cozy tone of this hopeful story.
