The Elves and the Shoemaker

The Elves and the Shoemaker illustrates lovable, elfin versions of the old familiar fairy tale. A young elf, just beginning to learn elf duties, is accompanied by two experienced elves who take him to the shoemaker’s shop for his first assignment. Here they find a scene of distress, as the shoemaker is gone to war, his wife and daughter are in danger of losing the shop for debt to the greedy Heckla if they cannot make her a pair of shoes for the morrow. Late that night, the elves make the shoes and return the next day to see their success. But Heckla has intercepted the money to pay off the debt and is about to take possession. Again the elves are obliged to come to the rescue to make it possible for everybody to live happily ever after
