Where's My Gumboot?
by Kylie Parry
In this humorous narrative, Dad has lost one of his gumboots and has to wear one of Mum’s boots to work. When he eventually finds the missing gumboot, Dad discovers a new owner – a mother hedgehog with her babies. The story uses rich descriptive language and dialogue to convey the frustration felt by Dad and the humour others find in the situation.
