About the Story

Elves and the Bootee Maker, The Jacob Grimm (1785-1863) and his brother Wilhelm Grimm (1786-1859) were born in a town near Frankfurt, Germany. Jacob and Wilhelm were fascinated with folklore and dedicated their lives to collecting and recording traditional folk stories, particularly German and Scandinavian tales. Throughout their lives, they remained close friends and studied law at Marburg University. Jacob and Wilhelm collaborated in the creation of a German dictionary but are best known for their collection of more than 200 folktales. “The Elves and the Shoemaker” was included in the Brothers Grimm 1812 fairytale collection, Children’s and Household Tales.
