The Devil With the Three Golden Hairs
The Brothers Grimm FolktaleUnknown - 2006
In this classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale that follows the tradition of "Hansel and Gretel" and "Snow White," a young peasant boy is predestined to greatness--once he overcomes an outlandish decree from the king. Demanding that the boy pluck three golden hairs from the scalp of the devil in order to win the princess's hand, the king dispatches him to the devil's cottage in the woods. Along the way many helpers materialize, including the devil's grandmother, helping the boy on his quest and reassuring readers that the peasant boy will prevail. Illustrations of the deep forest creep and crawl thrillingly--with hidden snakes and demons for children to identify--as the hero pushes on towards his encounter with the devil.
