A couple of weeks ago I re-discovered a lovely German fairy tale called “Zwergenmützchen” (roughly translated it means “Dwarf’s Hat”) by Ludwig Bechstein. It used to be one of my very favorite tales and I really enjoyed recording it for LibriVox now.

Oh, and if you get the chance, read along. The text really has the most beautiful pictures, some of which you can see here.


It is a cute tale about three brothers and their sister. While their father is very fond of the girl, he deeply dispises the boys. And so they decide to try to get a “Zwergenmützchen”. The first two brothers get caught in the attempt and are made to serve the dwarfs. But the third and youngest brother, who is cleverer than the other two, manages to get hold of such a “Zwergenmützchen”, which not only makes the wearer invisible but also makes him the ruler over all the dwarfs…

Hope you enjoy listening as much, as I did recording it! 😀
