Doctor All-Knowing

A Folk Tale from the Brothers Grimm

Illustrated by Alexandra Boiger / Retold by Doris Orgel

How clever are you?

And how sharp-sighted?

Are you as clever as Doctor All-Knowing -- keen to change his sad life (and feed his poor daughter, Maggie)?

Are you, like Doctor All-Knowing, sharp-eyed enough to search out the thieves who've been stealing a rich man's money from right under his nose?

Good!

You are just the one to watch Maggie as she cleverly, sharp-sightedly helps her father earn a four-course reward.

The Brothers Grimm rarely told so dross a tale as this little-known one, briskly retold here by Doris Orgel and animated to perfection by Alexandra Boiger.
