Innocence and the Beast

 

Paul Gallico‘s masterful story about a young woman who encounters the magic of a puppet theatre is one of the most ingenious romances in world literature.

Little Mouche unsuccessfully seeks a living in the glitzy world of Paris. Alone and disappointed she decides to throw herself into the cold currents of the Seine. However seven puppets from a nearby puppet theatre catch her attention and invite her to join them. Mouche’s innocence and gaiety enthrals the seven puppets and all who see them. Nevertheless the embittered puppeteer treats her roughly and unpleasantly. Then one day a young acrobat turns up and courts Mouche.

Rumpelstiltskin #04

From a mill to millions

 

“My daughter can spin straw into gold!” boasts the miller and thereby causes serious problems for her. Greedy for gold, the king believes the miller, and threatens the daughter with death if she does not perform this feat for him. An imp secretly offers to help her. Thereby he not only saves her life but also provides her with wealth and happiness. However she is at risk of losing everything when the imp demands the payment she promised: the baby of the miller’s daughter, who has now become queen. She may only keep her child if she can guess the name of the imp.

Tom Sawyer #04

The story of two wayward lads

 

St. Petersburg, a small town on the banks of the Mississippi. This is where Tom Sawyer lives, and his escapades there make life difficult for his aunt Polly. His best friend is Huckleberry Finn, who lives in a barrel by the riverside. Recently Tom has been taking an interest in Becky. He tries to impress her with his boasting, without realising that he will get the opportunity to prove himself sooner than he likes. One night when Tom and Huck sneak into the graveyard, they witness a murder. Out of fear they agree to keep silent about the crime. But Tom’s conscience begins to nag him: should he risk his life and his friendship to Huck in order to rescue an innocent person?

The Wooden Horse #04

From the Golden Apple of Discord to war

 

Three women talk about the war, the most famous war of classical times, which began with an argument between women. A golden apple with the inscription "For the fairest one" is thrown amongst the gods who are guests at a wedding. Paris, a young mortal from Troy, should judge which of three goddesses gets the apple. Paris choses Aphrodite who in exchange makes Helen, the most beautiful of all women, fall in love with Paris, who then takes her to Troy. Thus the ten-year war between mortals begins and results in countless victims. It is only through a trick that the Greeks manage to capture the undefeatable city of Troy, using a giant wooden horse as a gift.

Prince Dilly-Dally #04

The Last will be First

 

Prince Dilly-Dally is really Prince Willibald. However because he is so terrible slow in everything that he does, his older brothers have given him this nick name. They also call him “Creeping-cucumber”, “Sluggish-snail”, “Junk-dawdle” or “Slow-coach”.  Although Willibald tries his hardest to keep up with his faster brothers, he is continually last. There is always something that distracts him, sniffing the scent of the apple tree or watching a big fat beetle.

He would also like to save Princess Fritza, but he arrives at the dragon’s lair much too late. Or maybe not?
