One Hundred Shoes by Tony Ross

Book Description

When a centipede trips over, and hurts his foot, the only thing for him to do is obtain a set of shoes for all of his feet ...That is a lot of shoes! Now it could take him longer to get dressed than to do anything else. So, after a rethink, he shares his shoes amongst various neighbours: beetles, spiders, earwigs and other creatures. Count up the number of feet, and find out whether he manages to get rid of all his shoes! (Do you think he started with 100 in the beginning?)

US Kirkus Review » In this cross between Jonathan London's Froggy Gets Dressed (1997) and Stuart Murphy's "MathStart" series, a little centipede buys a hundred shoes after stubbing a toe, and then spends most of the next few days learning the error of his ways. First, because he finds out too late that, like most centipedes, he actually has only 42 feet; second, because it takes most of a day to tie even that many, and then to take them off at bedtime; and third, because he then discovers that he needs socks, too. In his signature cartoon style, Ross creates a buggy setting for Little Centipede, and fills it up with piles of small brown shoes and multicolored socks for young viewers to count. Realizing at last that it's just not worth the effort, Little Centipede gives his footwear away to (another counting opportunity) five spiders, four beetles, two woodlice, a grasshopper-and two delighted worms. As Little Centipede's mom, who should know better, indulges his folly without comment, the tale's internal logic isn't sewn down very tightly; still, children who struggle with tying even two shoes will sympathize with Little Centipede's situation. (Picture book. 5-7) (Kirkus Reviews)
