The IBBY-winning author and the illustrator have created something extraordinary this time. The old shoemaker has three sons. His ancestors have made shoes for kings, princesses and fairies for generations. But the three sons have decided not to follow in the family tradition so the old shoemaker becomes grumpy, sad and lonely. Until a weary, disgruntled, retired fairy visits him and demands a pair of seven-league boots.

This awesome modern fairy-tale talks about family, intergenerational understanding and finding magic in the modern world.
