This book is about how happy it made a little girl when her mom bought her a pair of tap dancing shoes while on a shopping trip at the mall. It tells about some fun filled exciting experiences both boys and girls may have with a pair of tap dancing shoes. The illustrator used Chesley's original artwork ideas as well as his/her own in the illustrations. The last two illustrations in her book are of dancewear used in her first dance recital.
As Chesley's mother, I like this book because it allows children to see what they can do too by putting forth the effort to do their best whatever the task, and not take shortcuts or take the easy way out all the time, especially in their reading and writing at school. I hope it will give students the confidence to persevere in their goals/dreams no matter what others do or say or how difficult it may get at times. This is also a fun and exciting book.
Chesley wrote this story in class one day about something she enjoyed doing, taking tap dancing lessons.

Life was a breeze for Casey Sullivan, a high school student with an eye for fashion, until a joyous occasion was muddied by an altercation she wanted desperately to forget. One would think that working at the Reinhold Detective Agency would have prepared her for these types of circumstances, but scandalous situations were a far cry from being in the midst of a senseless crime. A welcomed distraction presents itself as Casey's anguish builds. Casey grabs the opportunity and flexes her detective skills, hoping it will ease her distress, but her endeavor may be chancier than she anticipated. After all, playing detective is a dangerous game that only professionals should play.
