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.
