Adapted story from the Brothers Grimm
By Lisbeth Zwerger
Published by Penguin, 2007
Fearing their deaths as spent animals, a number of animals band together to go to Bremen to be musicians and avoid deaths by their owners. One night, they scare a group of robbers out of a house, keep them out, and take over the house. Though they never make it to Bremen, the heinous sound of their “singing” is what earns them their new home.
Great for young children studying folk tales and fairy tales.
