Description

A jar of jam and a swarm of flies start off this not-quite-normal adventure. A young tailor named Abraham Spoke swats seven of the flies with one smack of his belt. He's so impressed by his own bravery that he sews the words "SEVEN IN ONE STROKE" on his belt. As Abe travels the world, everyone who reads those words assumes the little guy is strong and powerful. Which can be dangerous when giants and clever kings challenge Abe to prove his might! This fractured retelling of a The Valiant Little Tailor, a lesser-known tale from the Brothers Grimm, will make readers giggle, groan and gasp with delight. Especially when they read about how Abe faces his biggest problem because he mumbles in his sleep!
