"The Curiosity Shop for Tall Tales" is run by a short old woman, wearing a smock with many pockets. One day, a small boy walked into the store and asked for a tall tale. The old woman looked into one of the pockets and said, "Ah, here’s a nice one! This is a brand-new tall tale, freshly picked." And she began her tall tale. A story written by an author of children's literature Kadono Eiko, the winner of the Hans Christian Andersen Award known as the Nobel Prize for children’s literature, or Little Nobel Prize.
