The porridge pot: 1854
In this newly translated German folk tale, a pot of porridge sparks a quarrelsome chase between a miller and his wife. Left behind is their daughter, who enters the dark forest in pursuit. But she loses sight of them, and all seems lost until a mysterious old woman appears and offers the girl a shoe, assuring her that everything will be fine as long as she follows her instructions. Doing as she's told, the girl ventures in search of a castle. Once there, her life will be turned upside down in this zany, uproarious yarn, illustrated by stunning, unique art that blends clay modeling with sumptuous paintings. It's a feast for both the eyes and the stomach.
