Farmers in their alpine valley are haunted by Fængler, a cunning old enchanter who ruins their lives by using an ancient wishing chain of powerful stones to spoil crops and steal children, cows, and goats.
Young Berwald and his sister, Clara, set out without their parents knowing to climb into the next valley, seize the chain, free their neighborhood of fear, and wish for whatever they want. But they soon learn the wild world beyond their home is full of strange forces - some good, some dark and twisted - and almost every wish they make adds new complications and disagreements.
Who can rescue them from this fearful and dangerous adventure? Before Adam, their angry and worried father, can reach them, he must learn to follow seemingly useless leads and to listen carefully to the tale that lies behind the villain’s bitterness.
A timeless fantasy tale given new life and enchantment in this vivid retelling in verse.
