"Kate and her mom are running late and Kate's shoes have gone missing!These words appear on the back cover of this intriguing picture book and are the only text. The colourful pages of the story are wordless, the vivid pictures drawing the reader into the imaginary landscapes to look for the missing shoes. The shoes are finally found in their box, but there are clues to the grand adventures they have been on. The bright and whimsical scenery and creatures, and the absurdity of some of the pictures should make kids laugh out loud.
