Bedtime Stories: The Cunning Shoemaker


I love reading to my kids. I know some parents do not have the time to read to their children, or have problems reading. So I am offering bedtime stories, all for free.

This story is The Cunning Shoemaker from
THE PINK FAIRY BOOK Edited by Andrew Lang

This story is about a Shoemaker who tricks a group of robbers multiple times into giving him their money.

This fairy tale is Rated R. The Shoemaker convinces the robbers to murder their wives, and finally to kill themselves. It is way to horrible for my tastes as far as fairy tales go.

You can read the book yourself for free at
