Man:Good afternoon, Sir. As I was passing by, I saw those beautiful shoes you have over there. They are just exactly what we are looking for to wear on our wedding day.

Narrator:Once upon a time in a magical world there lived a poor shoemaker. He was so poor that he didnít have enough money to buy leather to make a pair of shoes.

Shoemaker:Ellen, I donít know what are we going to do. I donít have enough leather. I can make only one pair of shoes.

Wife:Donít worry. We will solve our problem. I will prepare dinner.

Narrator:The shoemaker cut and prepared the leather to make the shoes, and he finished so tired that he decided to make the shoes next morning.

Shoemaker:My hands hurt. This leather is so hard .

Wife:George, dinner is served.

Shoemaker:I will leave everything on the table, and tomorrow morning I will finish this pair of shoes. I hope I can sell them soon and we can buy food.

Wife:They will be sold soon, you will seeÖ you are a good shoemaker.

Narrator:After dinner, the shoemaker and his wife went to bed. Next day sunlight woke up the shoemaker.

Shoemaker:I have to get up and finish the shoes. I hope to sell them soon.

Narrator:The shoemaker went downstairs and straight to his shop. He was astonished by what he saw.

Shoemaker:Whatís this? WHO made these shoes? They are perfect! Ö Ellen, Ellen, come quick!

Wife:Whatís wrong? Why are you yelling?

Shoemaker:Look! Look over the table? What do you see?

Wife:Itís a pair of shoes. You finished them really fast.

Shoemaker:I didnít do them!

Wife:Itís a miracle! They are perfect! You will get a lot of money.

Shoemaker:I will place them in the window.

Narrator:As soon as he placed the shoes in the window, he waited for someone to come in and buy the shoes. Five minutes later, a woman entered the shop to buy the shoes.

Customer:Good morning. I saw those shoes, and I want to try them on.


Customer:Let me try them on.

Shoemaker:Do they fit you?

Customer:They are perfect for me. They are just my size. Iíll take them.

Narrator:Before the shoemaker could tell him the price of the shoes, which was two silver coins, the customer gave him four silver coins.

Customer:Congratulations. Your shoes are of very good quality. From now on, I will always buy my shoes here.

Shoemaker:Thank you. Here are your shoes.

Customer:I am leaving now, but soon I will be back with my children. Good-bye.

Shoemaker:Have a nice day.

Narrator:The shoemaker was very happy because he sold the shoes, and at a higher price.

Shoemaker:Ellen, come here! I already sold the pair of shoes! That woman paid four silver coins!

Ellen:Good! Iím so happy!

Shoemaker:Now, letís go buy more leather and food.

Narrator:The shoemaker and his wife went out to buy what they needed. When they came back in the afternoon, the shoemaker started to work again. The shoemaker worked hard to cut the leather, and he didnít notice that it was night-time, until his wife called him.

Shoemaker:Oh, itís late, and I canít see very well .Iíll go to bed.

Wife:You look tired. Go to bed now.


Narrator:Next day, as soon as he entered his shop he was again surprised when he saw the two pairs of shoes completely finished.

Shoemaker:Oh, once again the shoes are finished! Who is doing this?

Narrator:But this time he didnít tell his wife. He just placed them by the window. A few hours later, a young couple entered the shop.

Man:Good afternoon, Sir. As I was passing by, I saw those beautiful shoes you have over there. They are just exactly what we are looking for to wear on our wedding day.
