This story is taken from the valiant little tailor. He fights his battles because he killed 7 flies with one blow. That makes him powerful. He goes on to fight ogres and giants. He also fights a unicorn all for the hand f the princess. To this princess he was a violent tailor. She was not happy. The king sent his henchmen to kill the tailor, but he scared them off and they were never seen again. The village made the tailor the king.The theme of this book is no matter the size or job or background you can do anything you put your mind to. ( )

Rewritten from the Brother's Grimm tale of The Brave Little Tailor. Originally was a German Folktale but is very closely linked to the way Cadmus dealt with intruders in Greek Mythology. This is a very wholesome story of trickery and has a nice message overall that if you set your mind to something, one can accomplish anything. ( )
