King Louie's Shoes

Written by D.J. Steinberg and illustrated by Robert Neubecker

Published by Beach Lane Books

Publisher's Summary

Get to know the hilarious true story of King Louis XIV of France and his famous high-heeled shoes!

King Louie was a very BIG king in all ways but one: He was five-feet-four-inches short. So Louie and his royal cobbler cooked up the perfect high-heeled solution to help Louie appear taller. But after an embarrassing tumble (on the dance floor, no less!) Louie learned that his subjects were loyal no matter how big—or how shrimpy—their beloved Louie might have been. Readers young and old will relate to this silly and sweet story of King Louie XIV—a man who had it all, but still felt small.
