Summary, etc.:
What could be more terrifying than a city crawling with rats? In The Ratcatcher, a story eerily similar to the legend of the Piped Piper, readers are taken to an old German town where thats exactly the problem. However, by the end of the tale, its not just the rats that have disappearedits all the towns children! This and other terrible tales are accompanied by full-color images and illustrations that add some beauty to otherwise dark literary worlds. The fire of readers imaginations will be lit as they encounter unforgettable storytelling in "Gold-tree and Silver-tree," "The Devil and his Grandmother," and "The King Who Would See Paradise."
