Lockhart Cobblestone, the shoemaker, has a kind heart but little money in his pocket. Moved by the plight of an old beggar woman, he gives her his last pair of shoes. Poor Lockhart has leather enough to make only one more pair of shoes and sets it out to work on the next morning. Then, the fun begins! Out pop five weird, endearing little elves: Mortz, Schwartz, Hazel, Gracie and Studebaker, who whip up the most fantastic and magical shoes the town of Clankbottom has ever seen. Here’s an upbeat, fast-paced retelling of an old favorite, filled with delightfully wacky characters and clever dialogue. This upbeat, whimsical romp of a fantasy also holds a gentle message about the nature of kindness.
