There once was a young girl, who was pretty but poor, so poor she had to go barefoot. Her name was Karen. She loved to dance. When Karen becomes an orphan, her great aunt takes her in. One day on a shopping trip, she is bought a beautiful pair of red shoes. The shoes magically come to life and steer Karen down a path she would never have imagined in her wildest dreams, or nightmares. This fresh take on the Hans Christian Andersen classic "The Red Shoes" is a tale of hope, obsession and guilt, retold and lavishly illustrated by Eisner award nominated Metaphrog.
This volume also includes Metaphrog's adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen classic, "The Little Match Girl" and an original story, "The Glass Case".
