If it weren’t for you gumboots where would you be? Little Ted knows that and he loves his red band gumboots but he has a rival. Yes it is Luke the Pook that carefree pukeko who fancies the boots himself.

Ted sleeps in so Luke puts them on and goes splashing through puddles and having great fun. Then he meets one of Mrs Moo’s big pancake shaped poos. He jumps in and gets stuck. What is he going to do? He can’t get out and Ted will be up  soon. Check it out to see what happens.

gumbootIn Gumboot Stomp Luke the Pook has not forgotten his earlier experience and dreams about having a pair of gumboots himself to go stomping about.  If he had new gumboots his feet would smell sweet.

He makes up the Stomping song and fantasises about what he would do and you’ve guessed it , it involves stomping in poo.

Both picture books are great read-a-louds and Kat Merewether has captured the fun with her illustrations. Life is a ball on Cow Pat Creek.

Pre schoolers and juniors will have fun with these two titles.
