Just a head's up, since this is a children's book, the bagpiper doesn't just steal a dead man's boots... They are frozen on so he cuts off the man's feet and warms them under a cow in a farmer's barn. When they thaw, he puts on the boots and, as a trick, he put's the bare feet in the cow's mouth to make it look like the cow ate him. After the horrified farmers bury the feet he stands on the grave and plays the bagpipes scaring the farmers off.

The bagpiper goes inside the farmhouse to eat and warm up by the fire. A knock at the door leads to the discovery that the "dead man" has come to claim his feet.

Hmm. Maybe this should be listed under "ghost story" or "horror". It's a quirky story but prone to bring on nightmares in little ones.
