It's an old Dutch fairy tale about the night where the bedbugs came down from the mountains and carried away all the children boots.  But wait a second, there are no mountains in Holland, and if this is an age old Dutch fairy tale, children would have been wearing wooden shoes. 

Thank you Willemien.  Can't wait to see the one about the little Dutch boy who plugs a dike with his finger.
