"Philbert LaRue had a Hole in his Shoe"

Philbert LaRue had a hole in his shoe
and he said to himself,
“I know just what to do.
I’ll ignore it, I will, that old hole in my shoe.
I’ll pretend it’s not there!
I’ll pretend my shoe’s new!”

A Seussical, lyrical, rhymingly-rhythmical comedy of errors that begins with a hole in a shoe and ends when a wiser Philbert learns a valuable lesson.

“What a delight to read Matt Pelicano’s wonderful children’s story, “Philbert LaRue had a Hole in his Shoe.” It is a story with a playful rhyme and an engaging rhythm. I started to giggle as soon as I read the title and never really stopped until I reached the end. Pelicano’s point is made perfectly clear: that when we put off fixing a small glitch it can turn into a big problem. This story is a marvelously fresh approach to learning a very important lesson. Philbert LaRue does indeed rue the day he decides not to fix the hole in his shoe! A must read for adults and children alike.”
