Synopsis

The Hut in the Forest by Jacob Grimm, Wilhelm Grimm

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.'

/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.

About the Author

The German brothers Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm spent years collecting and researching folk tales early in the 19th century. They published Children's and Household Tales in 1812, a collection which became known as Grimm's Fairy Tales. The collection included what are now some of the world's most famous stories, including Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel and Rumpelstiltskin. Wilhelm married in 1825, but Jacob never wed and for most of his life lived in his brother's home. The brothers also began a German historical dictionary, the enormous Deutsches Worterbuch, which ran to 16 volumes when it was finally completed by others in 1954.
