There was once lived an old man named Bruno. He was lonely and carved three wooden dolls for company.
One day Bruno went away and did not return. The three dolls got lonely. Soon, the house was covered in brambles and the dolls stayed hidden in the house. The house filled up with insects and grew smelly with decay.
Suddenly, one fine day, a man came down the lane and found the house. His wife and daughter liked the house too. But they too never came back.
However, when spring came, they re-appeared and cleaned the house and painted it until everything looked lovely.
The little girl founds the dolls and painted them too.
The dolls still didn't say anything....but we reckon that they are now happy with their new-found family.
A simple story, this tale is one that leaves so much to imagine and think about.
Kids will enjoy the gorgeous illustrations.
