15. The Knapsack, The Hat And The Horn

Three poor brothers hit the forest to seek their fortune, but can earthly riches mend a broken heart?
A magical wishing cloth gives one brother the power to offer a selection of meats which help him rob his way to power and world domination. But his ascension is threatened when a beautiful, brave and judgemental Princess discovers his secret. 
We go on an adventure filled with magic, war, love, loss and dirty charcoal burners.
We also recount a bizarre Danish version of the tale and finally we choose the next three stories we’ll be exploring on Grimm Reading.
