Funny Tales and Fairy Tales

Episode 7: ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’ Christmas Special

December 15, 2020

Hello, I'm Amanda, and in this episode I tell my version of the story:

‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’ originally written by The Brothers Grimm.

This is one of the few fairy tales with a Christmas theme, and my story features three very helpful singing elves who come to the aid of a kind-hearted shoemaker and his wife, just when they need it the most.

This is a magical story and its themes of kindness and giving are perfect listening for any time of year!

Hope you enjoy it!
