Ruby Red Shoes

Ruby’s Grandmother is called Babushka Gallina Galushka. Babushka means Grandmother in Russian. Gallina means silent and Galushka means dumpling.“She is round and cuddly and smells of violets.” Says Ruby.

Ruby collects buttons and has jars and little boxes filled with them. She loves the colours, they all look so small and important. When Babushka Galushka makes Ruby’s clothes, Ruby spends lots of time choosing which buttons to have.
The rest of the story can be found here at

Babushka Galushka gave Ruby the name Ruby Red Shoes when she was a baby. Her tiny feet would get cold like river pebbles so Babushka knitted Ruby a little pair of red shoes. They were the colour of radishes.
When anyone tried to take them off her feet she would cry and squeal.
