The Secret of the Tattered Shoes by Jackie Morris

£12.99

Available

Description

Selected by The Guardian as one of the top children’s books of 2019. The Secret of the Tattered Shoes is a fresh interpretation of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tale about twelve princesses who are locked in at night yet whose dancing shoes are still worn down by morning. A young soldier is tasked to discover their night-time adventures. But unlike the story told by the Brothers Grimm this soldier seeks a different ending. Jackie’s dark and poetic text updates this well-known tale and shows how stories evolve and adapt over time. Beautifully illustrated by Ehsan Abdollahi who has created stunning puppet-like illustrations in rich and delicate detail this unique illustrative style brings the story to life and perfectly encapsulate the beauty and melancholy of the story.
