The Bremen Town Musicians
This charming tale was first published in Grimms’ Fairy Tales in 1819. It tells the story of four aging domestic animals, who after a lifetime of hard work are neglected and mistreated by their former masters. Eventually, they decide to run away and become town musicians in the German city of Bremen. Contrary to the story’s title, the characters never arrive in Bremen, as they succeed in tricking and scaring off a band of robbers, capturing their spoils, and moving into their house. Hilarious family fun!
