Henriette Barkow & Roland Dry
A bilingual story book with the full story in both Polish and English.
When the town of Hamelin is overrun with hundreds of rats, a mysterious piper arrives to drive them away. But when the townspeople refuse to pay the Pied Piper for his work, he finds a shocking way of getting revenge.
This is a thoughtful retelling of a traditional German folktale which offers scope for introducing young children to more complex moral questions and for exploring the concepts of blame and responsibility. The Piper's terrible revenge emphasises the importance of fairness and honesty and the repercussions of not keeping our promises. It may also be relevant to Citizenship to consider the way the townspeople treat the Pied Piper. For example: what makes somebody a stranger? How should we interact with people who are different from us? How does it feel to be considered different?
