Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Review and Giveaway: The Elves and the Shoemaker told by Deanna McFadden

Elves make magic for a poor shoemaker and his wife in this much-loved tale originally told by the Brothers Grimm. 

 This is the classic retelling of the popular fairy tale The Elves and the Shoemaker. Author Deanna McFadden keeps the story simple but true to the original theme using 40 pages in a cute, little book (5"x7"). The characters convey the importance of hard work, helpful hands and gratitude. There are enough details to delight every age but it is also short enough for little ones to relate to and enjoy.

Marcos Calo has added beautiful illustrations to every page. The soft hues, clothing choices and architectural detail add to the old fashioned style of the book. This charming story has always been a favorite at our house and now I look forward to sharing it with the grandchildren!
Thank you to Sterling Children's Books for a book to review.
