A mother raised three daughters who she did not love equally. The youngest girl, the fairest of them all, was loathed by her mother. She would often send the little girl to the forest with the hope of her getting lost and never coming back home. And indeed it happened once. But the girl found her way to a little cottage in the woods. An old man welcomed her there and gave her a place to spend the night. The girl was so kind and good that the man gifted her with riches which the pious girl gave later to her mother. The mother was however greedy. So she sent her other two daughters out to the cottage with the hope of them getting if not more than at least as much money as the first time. However things did not go as planned. What went wrong and who was the old man? Find out in ”Saint Joseph in the Forest”. Children and adults alike, immerse yourselves into Grimm’s world of folktales and legends!
