THE SHOEMAKER AND THE ELVES by Ilse Plume

THE SHOEMAKER AND THE ELVES

Age Range: 4 - 8

KIRKUS REVIEW

 Plume (The Bremen-Town Musicians, 1980 Caldecott Honor) sets another of Grimm's tales in Renaissance Italy, expanding it with names and a bit of conversation and providing decorative illustrations with appealing, bright colors, sprightly elves, and Tomasina, a cat, who almost steals the show. An attractive setting for an old favorite. (Picture book. 4-8)
