The Elves and the Shoemaker

Shooooooooooooooes….! Ah, new shoes… Delightful on the feet. Soft, dancing shoes; swarthy pirate shoes; silver buckle and silken soles. No one makes shoes like an elf.

Inspired by the Ladybird book, this is the story of Elvis Schumacker, cobbler and craftsman, who has worked all his life creating the most beautiful footwear. But now he’s hit hard times… Everyone’s buying boring shoes from the evil businessman, Bunyan Soleless. Time is running out for Elvis. With one piece of leather left and Bunyan’s factory growing, can anyone help him?
