The fool and the tallest tree (an Austrian tale)
TELL ME A STORY
O nce upon a time a peasant had three sons, and everyone called the youngest boy, Hansel, a fool. Hansel was different from his brothers, and whenever he tried to do the things they did, he failed. When he failed, his father punished him. He thought that punishment would make his son wise. It did not, but Hansel didn’t mind.
