Part of the celebrated fairy tale collection by the Brothers Grimm, “The Golden Bird” is the story of three princes and their pursuit of a priceless golden bird.

Every year the king’s apple tree is robbed of one golden apple in the middle of the night. Determined to solve the mystery, the king’s gardener sends his sons to watch over the tree. The youngest discovers the thief—a beautiful golden bird. The boy tries to shoot it but misses, knocking a single feather from the creature. Because the feather is so valuable, the king sends his three sons on a quest to capture the bird. Along the way each prince meets a talking fox. The first two princes ignore the fox’s advice and abandon their journey. The third listens to the helpful fox, and he finds himself swept away on an exciting, dangerous adventure.

The Brothers Grimm were German academics, linguists, cultural researchers, and authors. They are among the most well-known storytellers of European folk tales, and their work popularized such stories as “Cinderella,” “The Frog Prince,” “Hansel and Gretel,” “Rapunzel,” “Rumpelstiltskin,” and “Snow White.” Their first collection of folk tales, Children’s and Household Taleswas published in 1812. The popularity of the Grimms’ collected folk tales has endured well beyond their lifetimes. The tales are available in hundreds of translations and have been made into popular Disney films, including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Sleeping Beauty, and Cinderella.
