Audience: K - 3rd Grade
A miller's daughter, trapped by her father's boasting, will die unless she spins straw into gold for the king. When a tiny man appears and offers to help, she has no choice but to accept his terms. When he comes to collect the debt, her first-born child, she must use all her wits to save her son. This retelling of the Grimm Brothers' tale is rendered in beautiful oil paintings. With rich colors, these paintings convey the nuances of the story of the miller's daughter and her dilemma.
