Summary / Résumé:

The Pied Piper of Hamelin.

The story goes that the town of Hamelin was plagued by an unusual number of rats, and a stranger from out of town, wearing multicolored (or "pied") clothes, showed up and offered to get rid of the rats in exchange for payment. The stranger then produced a flute or pipe and began playing a tune, at which time all the rats in town followed him out through the gates of the city and either to a nearby mountain or into the river, depending upon which version you encounter.
When the townsfolk saw how easily the piper had rid the town of rats, they regretted the amount that they had offered him and reneged on their deal. The piper vowed revenge, and later returned and once more walked through the town playing his pipe. This time, all the town's children followed him out through the town's east gate and up to the nearby mountain which, in most accounts, opened wide to swallow them up and they disappeared, never to be seen again..

The classic tale adapted from an old German tale.

LDF Notes: This collection introduces young children to time-honored tales, stories and fairy tales.

Le joueur de flûte de Hamelin.

Il était une fois, en Allemagne, une ville qui s'appelait Hamelin. Ses habitants étaient aussi gourmands qu'ils étaient riches, et leur plus grand plaisir était de se régaler de poulettes bien grasses, de pâtés croustillants et de brioches joufflues. Un soir de réveillon de Noël, alors que tout le monde attendait avec impatience de se mettre à table, le garde qui faisait sa ronde sur les remparts donna l'alerte. Avait-il vu venir une armée ennemie ou une bande de brigands ? Non, pas du tout. Ce qu'il avait aperçu était bien plus étrange. Il s'agissait de rats, de milliers d'affreux rats velus aux yeux rouges, à la longue queue et aux dents pointues...
