When the laces are tied, your shoes will be ready. For a world where nothing seems to last, here is a tale that will stay with you forever. Schumann the Shoeman is a story with soul. Lyrical, meaningful and stunningly beautiful, this picture book challenges readers to think about where things come from and the world of big business.
