What can you do with a shoe? If you can't come up with anything besides "put it on your foot," it's time to expand your horizons. In What Can You do with a Shoe, author and Caldecott medalist Beatrice Schenk de Regniers promotes a wide range of creative options for footwear, from putting a shoe on your ear to wearing it on your head to buttering it like bread or using apple jam instead. The same innovative approach to repurposing is applied to a chair, a hat, a cup, a broom, and a bed. Each time, a pageant of wacky possibilities is explored in rhyme, followed by an acquiescent nod to the traditional function of the object in question. Children and adults alike will love the anarchist thrill of ideas, from filling a hat with pickles to using a broom as a bear brush.
Here, it is the pictures that make the book, as the illustrious Maurice Sendak displays his talent for delightful drawings once again. This edition is the first to include full-color paintings, which make the whimsical illustrations of a boy and girl playing dress-up even more lively and endearing, and the perfect accompaniment to a celebration of endless imagination and possibility.
