Summary
After saving the town of Hamelin from a plague of rats, a poor piper expects recompense, and when it is not forthcoming, he steals the townsfolk's children, in an illustrated edition of the classic Browning work.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Robert Browning’s famous verse retelling of the medieval legend of the Pied Piper is renowned for its humor and vivid wordplay. When the selfish townspeople of Hamelin refuse to pay the piper for spiriting away the hordes of rats that had plagued them, he exacts his revenge by luring away their greatest treasure, the children of the town.

Color reproductions of Kate Greenaway’s beautiful, delicate watercolor illustrations adorn every page.
