Acclaimed author Joyce Dunbar teams up with an exciting new talent — her illustrator daughter, Polly — for this singsong tale of a baby who takes to the sea, the air, and the shops — in a shoe!

There once was a baby
Who lived in a shoe
And had learned how to say,
"How do you do?"

For one adventurous baby, there's no limit to the places you can go when using a shoe as a mode of transportation. Sailing by dolphins, tootling to the zoo, flying with birds, even sipping tea with the queen are all in a day's play — until a noisy one-shoed giant stomps by and a giantess sobs that she's lost her baby, "Boo-hoo-hoo." Is it finally time to shout "peekaboo"?

“There once was a baby / Who hid in a shoe / And had learned how to say, ‘How do you do?’ ” Thus begins the rollicking, rhyming, Edward Lear–style story of the adventures of the rosy-cheeked Shoe Baby.
