The Elves and the Cobbler

January 24, 2013

This is one of the Classic Grimm Brothers Fairy Tales that I recorded for my niece and nephew last year. I thought you folks might enjoy sharing this with your kids. Enjoy!

The Elves and the Cobbler or The Shoemaker and the Elves is an often copied and re-made 1806 story about a poor shoemaker who receives much-needed help from elves.

The original story is the first of three fairy tales, contained as entry 39 in the German Grimm's Fairy Tales under the common title "Die Wichtelmänner".
