Shoemaker Martin

A Christmastime story written by Leo Tolstoy and illustrated by the legendary European artist Bernadette Watts.

Martin, a Russian shoemaker, wishes to meet Jesus. Instead he finds three strangers in need. After showing kindness towards each one, Martin learns that it was Jesus who visited him three times. A beautiful story about sharing, with a message of compassion as relevant today as when it was first conceived.
