A woodcutter's daughter comes across a small house in the woods with an old man, a hen, a rooster and a spotted cow. She makes dinner for the man but not the animals - and doesn't return home the next day. Her younger sister follows. Finally, the youngest sister finds the hut. What will happen to her? This is a classic fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm about selflessness and looking after everyone equally.
The Brothers Grimm were Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, German professors who were best known for publishing collections of folk tales and fairy tales, and for their work in linguistics.
