The Pied Piper of Hamelin Moon Bun

Welcome to a month of Fairy Tales! This month, Moon's Creations will be creating one unique design throughout the month of May. Enjoy this fun series!

The Pied Piper of Hamelin tells of a mysterious stranger who is hired as a rat-catcher by the town of Hamelin. He uses a magic pipe to lure away the pests. After performing his job, the townsfolk refuse to pay him his promised fee. In retaliation, he uses his magic to lead the children of the town away in the same manner as the rats. Read more about this tale here.

Available at Moon's Creations.

I remember as a child I used to watch a fairy tale show on PBS where the stories were acted by puppets or clay-mation. This particular story scared the crap out of me. It was told by a little lame boy who was unable to follow the other children as fast. I can still feel the gut wrenching lost he felt at not being able to keep up with the others and being left behind.
