That is a good book which is opened with expectation and closed with profit.

Becan is a boy with big feet! No, I mean really BIG FEET! But it's okay, because he has a good heart. Unfortunately he also has a mean stepmother and mean stepsisters. Hmm, feet, mean stepmother... this sounds familiar!

Here is an interesting take on a classic fairy tale. Can you guess which one? I really like this book for it's originality and clean pictures. It's easy to enjoy!
