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.
