The Pied Piper

Shirley D. Fox

Children (3 - 10)

A faraway town governed by a corrupt mayor is invaded by a million rats. In a desperate attempt to solve the rat problem, the city council offers the Pied Piper one pound for each rat removed. But when the Pier Piper succeeds to march all the rats into a whirlpool, the mayor refuses to pay him, leading to dreadful consequences for the town’s population. A beautifully illustrated modern adaptation of a classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale.
