Description

Annette Marnat's children's picture book retelling the Brother Grimm fairytale The Shoemaker and the Elves. For ages 3-6.

Every night, two elves secretly help a poor shoemaker by making pairs of shoes, which he can sell in his shop. Very quickly, the shoemaker gets rich. To thank the elves, he decides to offer them clothes.

"At the twelfth stroke of midnight, the elves scampered to the bench. Instead of the usual pieces of leather, are the boots and the clothes. Immediately, the elves put on their presents, singing cheerfully:
We are warm!
We are beautiful!
No more shoes!

"After that night, the goblin fingers never came back. As for the shoemaker, he spent a merry Christmas. Then, he started working like the elves I had taught him: with gusto and imagination. And his shoes continued to sell like hotcakes!"

Résumé:

Il était une fois un gentilhomme qui épousa en secondes noces une femme, la plus hautaine et la plus fière qu'on eût jamais vue. Elle avait deux filles de son humeur, et qui lui ressemblaient en toutes choses. Le mari avait de son côté une jeune fille, mais d'une douceur et d'une bonté sans exemple : elle tenait cela de sa mère, qui était la meilleure personne du monde.
