Snip, snip, snip! Tap, tap, tap!
As the shoemaker and his wife sleep in their beds, somebody is quietly working away downstairs… They are busying themselves snipping and stitching and swishing and swooshing and, in no time at all, a beautiful pair of shoes sits gleaming on the counter.
How will the penniless shoemaker ever find out who is helping him?
Grimm’s timeless fairy tale is brought to life once more in an enchanting retelling of ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’; a heart-warming story about little things that make a big difference. Henriette Barkow’s reworking of this classic tale is a delightful way to help early readers appreciate the importance of kindness, charity, and helping others.
