New Shoes

(2) 1-3 With additional illustrations by George Boorujy. Shoe-making donkey Francis is thrilled when calypso singer, Miss Manatee, places a special order. When Francis (carrying a field guide with illustrations by Boorujy) and his bird friend Rhoda enter the jungle in search of wild tiger grass for the order, they make a surprising discovery. The cartoon panels in this silly and delightfully odd early-reader graphic novel's six chapters are filled with informational matter about South American jungles.
