The tailor and the innkeeper were great friends even though they often argued, and one day, they couldn’t come to an agreement about which one of them knew more about life. Luckily, the prince, who was known for his wisdom, overheard, and gave them a riddle to help solve the argument. Whichever one of them could solve the riddle would be the one that knew more about life. Who figures it out?, who helps them, and what does the prince learn himself?  Michelle Shapiro Abraham retells the story, adapted from [italics: The Innkeeper's Wise Daughter], which can be found in "Fearless Girls, Wise Women and Beloved Sisters: Heroines in Folktales from Around the World" by Kathleen Ragan.
