The Cunning Little Tailor
The Brothers Grimm Jacob and Wilhelm were German academics, linguists and authors specializing in collecting and publishing folklore. The stories “Cinderella”, “The Frog Prince”, “Rumpelstiltskin”, “Snow White” and others are popular all across the globe. Three tailors wanted to test their luck and to try to solve riddles of a princess, for the one who managed to do it married her – so was her word. The first two tailors failed to give the right answer, but the third one didn’t. Proud and self-assured, the princess ordered him to spend a night in a barn with a brutal bear, fearing that now she had to keep her word. The little tailor could not disobey and walked into the barn. But he was really cunning. This is a wonderful entertaining and edifying story for little children.
