The Secret of the Tattered Shoes
The Secret of the Tattered Shoes is a story about a tired man who has just come into the woods after fighting. The man meets a woman who tries to cheer him up, but the man doesn’t want to be cheered up. The man doesn’t want to live anymore. The woman convinces the man to go into the kingdom nearby and try to solve a riddle by the king. The king has twelve daughters who go to bed in a locked room, and when it’s morning, they are very tired, and their shoes are about to fall apart. If anyone can solve the riddle, then they will get a prize from the king.
This story was a little hard for me to understand without having my mom explain what was happening. Some of the words weren’t ones that I know, but when it was explained to me, then I understood what was happening, and I liked the story. I liked the secret power that the man had, and I thought that the princesses were very pretty in the pictures. Kids a little older than me will probably like and understand the story more, but it’s a sad and fun story to read.
