"These rain boots are perfect in mud..." but "...
when Dog went for a swim, they filled up with water and he sank with a PLOP!"

Dog in Boots
by Greg Gormley

A Mockingbird Book for 2012-2013

Kids Wings Top Flight Book

When Dog reads Puss in Boots, he is inspired to find the perfect footwear for himself. Luckily, at the shoe store, he finds the same magnificent boots as Puss wore in his story, so he buys them. What do you think happens when he wears them home to dig up his very best bone?

So he exchanges the magnificent boots for some rain boots. What do you think happens next?

Each time Dog tries a new pair of shoes, something else happens!

What can Dog do? You may be surprised at how this story ends!

The Kids Wings' literature guide will connect the traditional story of "Puss in Boots" with this new fanciful dog tale to delight your students! Included in the Kids Wings' materials is a readers' theater script for "Puss and Boots" and many enjoyable actitivies that complement and extend Dog in Boots.
