Book Description

9 Jun 2003
Hans Crispin, a traveling shoemaker extraordinaire, has a very unusual talent. When he arrives in a village, he crafts one-of-a-kind shoes for the villagers to make their lives easier and more fun. His shoes make them taller, or more energetic, or even more confident! But in town, the local cobbler becomes jealous and tricks Hans into paying a visit to a hungry giant, claiming he needs a new pair of shoes. But what the giant really wants is to have Hans for dinner! Steve Light's inspired, original tale, illustrated with the brightly colored cloth-and-paper collages, will charm children with its clever twist. A special art and design element of this book is that the art is made from paper hand-printed using the soles of shoes.
