What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

“Goodness!” the little seamstress said. “I’ve killed seven flies with one blow.” And to mark the event, she took out her favorite coat and stitched on the back: SEVEN WITH ONE BLOW! Proud of her amazing feat, the brave little seamstress sets off to tell the world. It’s not her fault if, along the way, a giant sees her coat and thinks she slayed seven giants, now is it? Based on the classic fairy tale “The Brave Little Tailor,” Mary Pope Osborne’s spirited retelling — this time starring a gutsy seamstress — and Giselle Potter’s charming illustrations take you to a magical world where a little heroine meets even the biggest challenges with wit and imagination.

I didn’t really get it. It was a tad random. A bit violent. Actually quite violent.

This should be called The Clever Little Seamstress—while it was fun to see how the seamstress would outsmart (and sometimes lie to) those she went up against, the beginning of the story, which is also the premise for the entire book, seemed even more silly than the tasks she completed throughout. These illustrations aren’t my favorite style.
