Description
When Death comes to call in his black cloak, Colin the shoemaker does not go meekly, in this unconventional and charming picture book for readers 5 to 8, with whimsical painted illustrations. Instead, Colin thinks about the shoes he will leave unfinished, the feet that will go cold, and he realizes Death goes barefoot. "What you need is a good pair of shoes," he tells the startled reaper. "Sandals, I think; they would go with the robe." Assuring him they will be ready in a month, Colin ushers him out of the door. When Death returns, he is actually delighted by the coffin-shaped sandals, and Colin begins making him more shoes, in all styles, until, after some years, the two have become friends—if such a thing can be said of Death.
