In this humorous adaptation of the Grimm fairy tale, Abe Spoke is the young tailor who sews the words "seven in one stroke" on his belt, but neglects to tell the people he meets that it was seven flies, not seven giants--his cleverness (and chutzpah) win him the hand of the princess, but unfortunately he has a bad habit of muttering about cloth and tailoring in his sleep.
