Shoe Baby

Shoe Baby goes all around town having all sorts of adventures, riding around in a shoe that has quite magical capabilities.  The shoe can be a boat, a car, a plane… all SORTS of things. 



 

Everywhere Shoe Baby goes he greets the people and creatures he encounters with a polite, ‘How Do You Do?’  He even has tea with the king and queen!



Soon, all the adventuring has Shoe Baby tired out.  He drifts off to sleep in the shoe, and has intriguing dreams. 

Meanwhile, two giants come by, both quite out of sorts.  One is sobbing!  One is missing a shoe, and one is missing a baby… is there a connection?
