This charming series retells classic fairy tales with bright illustrations and a clever tone. The stories in the Little Pebbles series have been adapted for children today while respecting the richness and flavor of the original versions. The small size of the books and their warm, inviting illustrations will appeal to children, who will also love the game page at the end of each book and will want to read all the books in the series. A poor shoemaker's shop is blessed with a nightly miracle: scraps of leather left on the worktable mysteriously become beautiful shoes that sell immediately the next day! When the shoemaker and his wife discover who has been bringing them good fortune, they show their gratitude by leaving a special Christmas gift.
