1932 Snipp, Snapp, Snurr and The Red Shoes, Maj Lindman. Illustrated wonderfully


A wonderfully illustrated charming tale of three Swedish boys working to buy their mother red shoes. Maj Lindman was a Swedish illustrator that produced a series with Snipp, Snapp and Snurr (the three boys) and they were translated and re-printed in English. This is a 1932 English edition, in quarto size, with bright and beautiful illustrations. It's also quite refreshing to have a story where the boys focus on someone other than themselves, as also discussed in the introduction.
