A Little Golden Book retelling of a favorite Grimm's fairy tale, beloved by generations!

This classic fairy tale about two selfless shoemaking elves shows the joy that comes from giving—and receiving—generosity and kindness. Preschoolers will be captivated by the story of the poor shoemaker and his wife, who are surprised to find beautifully made shoes sitting on their workbench, which are soon snapped up by wealthy customers. In thanks, the shoemaker and his wife sew warm little outfits for the elves!
