There once was a king who hated bath time so much that he never washed. He was a very smelly king! The king is finally persuaded to bathe in the river but no matter how clean the rest of him is, his feet stay dirty. The people sweep away all the dirt in the land - but the air is choked with dust.

The dust gets washed away but now the land is flooded with water. An enormous tapestry is sewn to cover the whole kingdom but now nothing will grow on the land... What is to be done?

At last one old man steps forward with leather and a pair of scissors ...and to the king's amazement he creates - the first-ever pair of shoes!
