A famous tailor crab has a thriving business stitching clothes for the other animals, until the day he sews pants for a caterpillar and realizes he could make more money, charging a flat fee of $10 per shirt, no matter its size, and $5 for each leg of pants. But upon spending a week to make an enormous shirt for an elephant and receiving no money for the legless pants he sews for a boa constrictor, he realizes his error and discovers the true value of fairness, good customers, and good friends. A beautifully illustrated and thoughtful tale of a fairness and friendship by Bingbo, the multi-award-winning author of hundreds stories for children.
