Originally written by French author Reuben Saillens and later retold by Leo Tolstoy, this endearing story has now acquired the status of a folk-tale. The heart-warming story of lonely shoemaker Papa Panov's generosity reflects the true spirit of Christmas. Mig Holder's much loved text is complemented by charming illustrations by Julie Downing which capture the changing mood of the story.
