Romy has already lived in many fantastic places around the world. But she’s had enough of travelling and homeschooling and would much rather go to a normal school where she can see her friends every day! However, she needs to convince her parents first – they’ve recently started managing a hotel in the Alps. Can magical shoemaker Lilly and her companions help Romy?

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 Author

Usch Luhn grew up in Austria. She studied communication studies in Berlin, trained as a screenwriter and film dramaturge, and has many years experience working in radio and children’s television. The author has written more than 30 books, many of which have been translated into other languages.

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.
