The Secret of the Tattered Shoes, Hardback Book

The Secret of the Tattered Shoes Hardback

Part of the One Story, Many Voices series



Selected by The Guardian as one of the top children's books of 2019. The Secret of the Tattered Shoes is a fresh interpretation of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tale about twelve princesses who are locked in at night, yet whose dancing shoes are still worn down by morning.

A young soldier is tasked to discover their night-time adventures.

But unlike the story told by the Brothers Grimm, this soldier seeks a different ending.

Jackie's dark and poetic text updates this well-known tale and shows how stories evolve and adapt over time.

Beautifully illustrated by Ehsan Abdollahi, who has created stunning puppet-like illustrations in rich and delicate detail, this unique illustrative style brings the story to life and perfectly encapsulate the beauty and melancholy of the story.
