Sofia loves climbing – not even her anxious parents can stop her. Hence, magic shoemaker Lilly is mystified at first why Sofia, of all people, would need her help. But Sofia suddenly loses her dexterity, which seems to have something to do with the dust a strange lady with a ferret is whirling all around the town. Now only the magic shoes can save the day! But making them is an enormous challenge because the special ingredient for the shoes is stardust – and that is really hard to find.

About the Series

This shoemaker's workshop is full of magic! Here, you can buy shoes that make you faster, more courageous or more popular. But only children who are in real need of magical shoes can find Lilly Wonder's workshop, the dragon Archibald and Mrs Wu, the wise turtle.

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.
