Booklist - 11/15/2019 Lunde (Whose Poop Is That?, 2017) turns from scat to feet in this similarly formatted picture book. Introducing each of the seven animals are the recurring question (“Whose footprint is that?”), a visual hint featuring part of the animal, black footprints set against a white background (for easier examination), and a clue about how the footprint was made. Turning the page reveals such animals as a mountain goat, wallaroo, or snowshoe hare, all depicted in their natural settings in textured, gouache paintings. A few sentences of simple text also describe how the animal moves. For instance, a chimpanzee stands on its hind feet but uses finger knuckles for balance when it moves. Although the layout repeats for each animal, there are still plenty of “footprint” surprises, including a snake’s slithering pattern, made without feet, and a dinosaur’s fossilized print. But can an animal change its footprint? A final interactive spread lets children match ice skates, hiking boots, and other foot gear to their corresponding footprints. Finally, footnotes readers will enjoy! - Copyright 2019 Booklist.
