Monsieur Archibald the dragon is terribly homesick. So shoe maker Lily and her uncle Clemens Wunder decide to get him a very special Christmas present - Christmas with his family in France. Archibald is delighted! They also quickly find suitable lodgings for their adventure: an old castle right on the Atlantic coast, home to a whole colony of dragons.

The Illustrator

Alica Räth is always very excited when Monsieur Archibald knocks on the small window of her loft in Abensberg. He brings her sketches by Lilly’s uncle Clemens and of course all the news from the magical shoemaker’s workshop. Alica has been drawing these magical shoes since she started studying at the Academy for Design in Rostock, often deep into the night, while the dragon sleeps next to her, tucked into the bookshelf.
