Fairy Tale Collection: Brave Little Tailor

Tailor Simon has had enough of working for other people. One day he ventures forth into the world to seek his fortune. On his journey he’s stopped by two giants who try to scare him. Yet the smart Simon outfoxes them and finally reaches the kingdom of Arconia. Here, two fiendish court schemers have terrified the entire country by spreading the rumour that the two giants are fearsome monsters. However Simon tells everyone how harmless they are. People believe him and start to protest against the high taxes raised to stave off the alleged fearsome giants. Simon is thrown into the tower but fortunately, the bold tailor can rely on the help of Princess Helena. Through trickery and a slice of good fortune, Simon proves his bravery to her father the King and is awarded with half the kingdom and the marriage with Helena.
