Here is the classic Grimm’s tale of a run-away donkey, a down-and-out dog, a cast-off cat, and a rooster ... about to be cooked. They set off together to Bremen to become the town musicians. This story, with its singularly satisfying happy ending, is made especially delightful by the enchanting illustrations of Hsin-Shih Lai and the inventive design of Howard Besserman. It will bring a smile to young and old alike. Ages 4-7.
Hsin-Shih Lai, the illustrator for this book, was born in Taipei, Taiwan. Her mother loved all the arts and sent Hsin-Shih to a painting and drawing teacher when she was 4 years old.

After working for a while as a freelance illustrator, she met Anthroposophy and, in 1999, moved to the U.S., where she ompleted her eurythmy training in 2004. Hsin-Shih now lives in Spring Valley, New York, and works as an illustrator and performs with the Eurythmy Spring Valley touring group.
