DESCRIPTION:“When the clock struck twelve, in came two little elves. Tap-tap went their hammers. Snip-snap went their scissors. You will love this see-saw book.” (from the back cover) This is a retelling of the classic fairy tale about the Shoemaker who comes into his shop in the morning to find that his work had already been done.
