LoveReading View on Wild Washerwomen

Celebrate liberation! Forced to wash grubby hankies, horrid socks and ghastly towels by their skinflint boss, seven oppressed washerwomen go on strike and, getting aboard a goat cart, set out to have fun. Seven woodcutters think they’ll get the better of them but they are easily outwitted by the ebullient and determined  washerwomen. All ends happily as washerwomen and woodcutters settle down to married bliss, which includes making choices about washing and woodcutting. A wonderful treat for young and old alike and a real classic that should sit proudly on every nursery bookshelf.

Wild Washerwomen Synopsis

Once upon a time there were seven unhappy washerwomen. They had far too much washing to do and the owner of the laundry, Mr Balthazar Tight, was simply dreadful! So they decide to go on strike. They are so happy with their newfound freedom that it seems nobody can control them. Until along come seven woodcutters, eager to teach them a lesson.
