Named an ALA Notable Children's Book and featured on many "Best of the Year" lists, this charming picture book, acclaimed for its superb storytelling and brilliant art, is now available in paperback.
Cloaked in black, Death has come to call on Colin the shoemaker. Thinking quickly, Colin notices that Death is barefoot and offers to make him some shoes. Death, completely befuddled, is fitted for sandals (as they'll go best with his robe) and leaves. Each time Death comes to call on Colin, he leaves with a sole, but never the one he intended. At last, Colin knows he has made Death every kind of shoe possible. What will happen when Death knocks on his door again?
