It's Christmas Day, and Pap Panov, the lonely old shoemaker, is waiting for a special visitor. Things don't turn out at all how he expected—but by the end of the day the sparkle is back behind his little round spectacles. This classic folk tale was adapted by Leo Tolstoy from the French original. In this new edition, Mig Holder's charming retelling and Julie Downing's delightful illustrations combine to enchant a new generation of readers.
