Description

A woodcutter's daughter comes across a small house in the woods with an old man, a hen, a rooster and a spotted cow. She makes dinner for the man but not the animals -- and doesn't return home the next day. Her younger sister follows. Finally, the youngest sister finds the hut. What will happen to her?

This is a classic fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm about selflessness and looking after everyone equally.

Reviews

'The enchanting story of the woodcutter's three daughters has beautiful dreamlike illustrations, making this hardback book a treasure to read and keep.'
-- Family Interest Magazine, Jan/Feb 2008

'It's not life. It's a fairy tale and, in true Grimm's style, it's highly moralistic, environmentally right-on and disturbingly affectring.'
-- Mary Medlicott, The School Librarian, Spring 2008
