Bremen Town Musicians
A Brothers Grimm story about friendship and persistence, illustrated by the legendary European artist Bernadette Watts.
When a donkey, a dog, a cat, and a rooster are no longer wanted by their masters, they decide to run away and become musicians in Bremen Town. There they discover a warm little cabin, but find that robbers occupy it! Will the four friends plan to scare the robbers away work?
Watts's soft, more traditional illustrations... are appealingly pretty (in the best sense), representing the animals with sympathy, their defeat of the robbers with some humor, and the setting with a pleasant nostalgia.
