ELVES AND THE SHOEMAKER a Vintage Ladybird Book from the Well Loved Tales Series 606d. Matte Hardback 1977
"This is the story of a Shoemaker and his wife who are very poor. They have only one small piece of leather left. The next morning they find the leather has been transformed into a beautiful pair of shoes. The shoes are so fine that a lady pays twice the usual price for them."
"Each morning new shoes appear and soon the shoemaker and his wife become well off. One night they decide to keep watch to see who has been making all of the shoes. They are astonished to see two little elves dressed in old, worn-out clothes."
"As thanks for their kindness the elves are rewarded by the Shoemaker and his wife with a new set of fine clothes."
Written by Vera Southgate with illustrations by Robert Lumley.
