Honesty and hardwork are justly rewarded in this Brothers Grimm fairy tale, illustrated by the legendary European artist Bernadette Watts.
Two sisters find their fortunes changed when they both tumble down a well into the magical land of Mother Holly. The first sister, unloved by her step-mother but appreciated by the gentle Mother Holly, finds that her hard work and kindness pays off luxuriously. When the second sister tries to recreate her sister’s good fortune, her laziness puts her in a sticky situation– and she realizes she must change her ways. Bernadette’s delicate and colorful illustrations transport the reader into the fantasy land of this timeless tale.
