Betty Lou Blue
Nancy Crocker

Sale! Was $16.95, now $6.98!

Betty Lou Blue had the world’s biggest feet.

Whackety, thwackety, flappety feet.

The other kids laughed when she whappeted by. "If those feet were wings," they would yell, "you could fly!"

Poor Betty Lou. It’s not easy being funny-looking, as this delightfully rhyming story illustrates. On the day of a huge snowfall, Betty Lou watches shyly as the other kids play in the park. Suddenly they’re trapped in the drifts! Now Betty Lou’s snowshoe-sized feet are looking quite handy. Perhaps this is her chance to be a hero?

Utterly quirky and full of fun, this winning tale celebrates generosity of spirit. Boris Kulikov has won much praise for his artwork and is perhaps best known for illustrating John Lithgow’s Carnival of the Animals. His lovely winter cityscapes and offbeat perspectives make a terrific pairing with firsttime author Nancy Crocker’s sprightly story. This is a funny, stylish book that will appeal to readers of any age (or shoe size!).
