A little girl tries to find the owner of a broken umbrella she has found in the shop. The Peach Tree, the Tailor and the Seagull think that this umbrella belongs to an old man and begin to tell stories of old men with green umbrellas they have met in their old days. While telling their stories they touch the umbrella the shopkeeper is mending with their own tongues and ornament it. Towards the evening a little boy wearing the costume of an old man for the school’s New Year’s play comes to the shop to find his umbrella he has forgotten there. But there is no old umbrella left; he only finds an ornamented, charming new one. Note: "The Broken Umbrella" was chosen the Illustrated Book of the Year in 2006 by the Association of Children’s Publishing.
