The Elves and the Shoemaker

A Grimm Graphic Novel

By Jacob W. and Wilhelm Grimm; by Retold by Martin Powell; Illustrated by Pedro Rodríquez

This Grimm Brothers tale has been adapted to graphic novel format. The familiar story is well told and the illustrations are eye-catching. Students that may not typically pick up a fairy tale will be drawn to this– the elves have a gremlin look to them.

This book is one of a series of Grimm tales by Stone Arch books. At the beginning, the characters are introduced. At the end you’ll find discussion questions, writing prompts, and a glossary.

  1. I love getting the fairy tales in the graphic novels, then the older students will check them out. Rainbow books as a really fun series with great graphics.
