This very funny folktale tells about the princess who will not laugh. Her father says he will give her hand in marriage to the man who can make her laugh – and one boy plus a golden goose set off to the palace to try their luck? As they go along, the animals and people they meet all try to steal one of the golden goose’ s feathers – and they stick fast to the goose. ” Honk Honk Hold Tight!” says the boy, and the whole parade soon ends up at the palace. What will the princess do?
A fabulous read-aloud, laugh-out-loud story that has its origins in Italy, Germany, Norway, Sweden and the UK, with variants discovered in Russia and Egypt.
