What's The Red Shoes About

Publisher Summary

Have you ever wished for something so hard that you could think of nothing else? When Karen becomes entranced by a pair of beautiful red dancing shoes in a shop window, they fill her every thought and dream. One fateful day, she is able to buy the shoes for herself, only to learn later, as the shopkeeper tells her, to “be careful what you wish for, because it may come true.” The enthralling presentation of this Hans Christian Andersen classic will win readers over with its luminous illustrations and engaging text, and will remind them of the lessons of life and love.
