You'll love this because...

Your child gets to star in one of the most well-known children’s fairytales of all time.

  • Personalise with any name and a special presentation message
  • A personalised, hardback Ladybird copy of The Elves and the Shoemaker
  • Easy-to-read script
  • Delightful hand-drawn illustrations
  • Measures 12.6 x 17.8 cm

Treat your child to a Ladybird easy reading book they will love because they get to star alongside its famous characters. First published by Ladybird in 1965, this timeless story tells the tale of an impoverished shoemaker and his wife. Out of the kindest of his heart, the shoemaker donates his last pair of shoes to a needy lady. Luckily, a group of elves rush to the shoemaker’s aid in the middle of the night. The elves then help him make shoes, which sell for higher prices than usual. A tale of morality and overcoming hardship, this delightful story teaches plenty of important life lessons. With this gift, you can open your child’s imagination and put them within the story themselves. It will be a book they will treasure throughout their life. Complete with stunning, hand-drawn illustrations, and text by Vera Southgate, this book will bring a smile to the face of any child who reads it.

Our The Elves and the Shoemaker storybook is a truly thoughtful gift. Even better, you can personalise this wonderful book with any name, which will appear thoughtfully embedded into its colourful images, making your child feel extra-special.

How to Personalise

Personalise the book with any name, up to 12 characters, which will appear on the cover and featured throughout the images, and add a special presentation message in the book’s opening pages. Check your personalisation: accents and other symbols cannot be used unless otherwise stated.
