Have fun with numbers in this hilarious new picture book by master storyteller and illustrator Tony Ross.

"One hundred shoes, please!" said the little centipede. "Fifty left ones, and fifty right ones." "Why do you want one hundred?" asked the shoe seller. "Because I'm a centipede, which means a hundred feet," said the little centipede.

But when are one hundred shoes too many shoes? And what do you do with too many shoes? Why, you give them away!

Find out who gets them in this delightfully silly story about a centipede with sore feet.
