The collection "Once Upon a Time" offers a new and richly illustrated version of the most famous fairytales.
Once upon a time, there was an honest little tailor who worked very hard to honour all the orders he got.
One day, he had prepared a thick slice of bread with jam to eat from time to time during his workday. Attracted by the jam, several flies came through the window and sat on the bread. Annoyed, the little tailor finally slammed a piece of cloth on them. Whack! Seven flies went down dead. The little tailor was very proud of his achievement. He pulled out his belt, then embroidered on it with large letters, "Seven with one blow!" He then decided to quit his job and travel the world to tell his own story.
