Get ready for an utterly awesome version of Hans Christian Andersen's "The Red Shoes" from Metaphrog and Papercutz

Gaze upon the splendour of this gorgeous gorgeous book! Hans Christian Andersen's "The Red Shoes" is about to get a timely update courtesy of John and Sandra at Metaphrog. 

Published by Papercutz in October (I know, it's a long L-O-N-G wait but it will be worth it, trust us!) this updated version is as darkly delicious as the original. 

"The Red Shoes" is the story of a young peasant girl living a life tinged with tragedy. Grief-stricken after her mother's death, but luckily adopted by a rich old spinster, the girl wants for nothing. Her adopted 'mother' bestows many gifts upon her, including a brand new pair of red shoes to replace her shabby old ones. The shoes are magical and sometimes move by themselves - but is dark magic at hand?

One look at the cover of this, and also at the images contained in the book trailer is enough to make us absolutely certain we're going to love this to bits.
