Henry is afraid of water – a real problem for a child who lives on the coast! Luckily, he meets magical shoemaker Lilly and her companion. Henry urgently needs magical shoes to overcome his fears! However, Lilly also needs Henry’s help, because Mrs. Wu, the tortoise, suddenly disappears and Henry has the perfect search device: a drone. As it turns out, Mrs. Wu has been abducted – to the same island where Lilly’s parents are held captive!

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.
