I’ve read quite of few of the Grimm Brother’s tales, as in highschool on of my english classes was all about folklore and fairytales. (Gotta love senior fluff classes!) But I can’t recall if I’ve ever read The Bremen Town Musicians. The idea of it seemed familiar to me, but I didn’t remember the ending of the book!
The story is about a Donkey who leaves town and decides he is going to the town of Bremen to be a musician. On his way he meets a cat, a dog and a rooster and they all want to leave town as well so the donkey tells them to come along with him and they can all become musicians in Bremen.
The book is short – a great bedtime story – coming in at only 40 pages. The illustrations that Brian Wildsmith did are wonderful! The book will be out TODAY! in both paperback and hardcover from Star Bright Books
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review from the publisher through NetGalley.
About the Book
A retelling of the Grimm Brothers’ beloved tale about an old donkey who leaves the farm to travel to Bremen where he hopes to join a band. On the way, he meets a dog, a cat, and a rooster. With a bray, a bark, a meow, and a cock-a-doodle-doo, they become fast friends and decide to travel together to Bremen—getting there leads to great unexpected results.
