The Elves and the Shoemakerby Jim LaMarche
Here is the classic tale of elfin magic, loved by generations of children and made new by an artist of international acclaim. Jim LaMarche's stunningly rendered paintings, reminiscent of his earlier work in The Rainbabies, are the perfect complement to this favorite Grimm fairy tale. Plus, this version includes audio and read-along setting.

As in his award-winning book The Rainbabies, LaMarche sets every picture glowing, whether with lamplight, starlight, shafts of morning sunlight or just some inner light that all the characters in this kindliest of tales seem to possess. - The Washington Post

I love the illustrations in this book. They are charming and very child friendly. They details included by the illustrator greatly enhance the story and its value as a read-aloud book for my classroom. This is the best version I have ever seen or worked with. I definitely recommend this book.
