Leo Tolstoy,one of the giants of Russian literature, has oft been labelled one of the greatest novelists of all time. Partly biographical, the story has its roots in Tolstoy’s own military experiences towards the later stages of the Caucasian War, but the fictional tale of the Russian aristocrat who falls in love with a Cossack girl has many parallels with Anna Karenina. Tolstoy began writing The Cossacks in 1857, only finishing it six years later to pay his debts after a particularly painful loss at cards, but its swift termination definitely does not take away from its worth.

Shoemaker Martin wins my 2nd Annual "best book read this year for the first time award." This little children's adaptation of a story by Leo Tolstoy blows away all the other books I read for the first time this year. There is no book that I have reviewed this year that I recommend more highly.
This is the story of Martin. Martin is a Russian man who spends his days mending shoes and his nights in the pleasurable reading of the Bible. One night, after reading how a rich man invited Jesus to stay at his house, Martin wishes that he could invite Jesus to his house and wonders what he would do if Jesus actually showed up.
The rest of the book is the story of what happens when Jesus comes. It is a story told with wonderfully spare language. Mrs. Watts' beautiful illustrations add to the warm feeling of this wintery tale.
There are few things I have ever reviewed that I recommend more than Shoemaker Martin--get this book!

I loved this book because it is one of the few children's books that has real feeling. It underscores the true principal of Christianity in a way that children are able to understand. I bought this book for a little girl who became so attached to the book, she carried it around with her everywhere, and even slept with it, she loved it so much. I highly recommend this book for any child.
