Paul Galdone's retelling of The Elves and the Shoemaker includes his famous illustration work. This hardbound version with gold foil stamping is definitely one for collecting.

Late one night, a very poor shoemaker cuts his last two pieces of leather and goes to bed, worried about how he will support his family. He wakes to find two exquisitely made shoes in place of the leather. They are so beautiful that a customer pays more than the asking price, and the cobbler is able to buy enough leather for another pair of shoes. The next morning, the cut leather has been turned into shoes again!
Who could be giving the shoemaker this gift?
Paul Galdone's retelling of this Classic fairy tale is accompanied by his detailed illustrations that add so much to the story. Children will love the illustrations as much as the tale.
