The original tale of "The Golden Bough, a Fairytale Ballet for Children" is now available in this new Spanish edition.

A little girl discovers a magical, golden bird trapped in a golden cage where it has been languishing for years, bewitched by a wizard in the distant past. The girl dares to free the bird from the curse and rescues the bird twice more: in the midst of a swirling snowstorm and when monsters attack. The bird promises to repay the debt someday.

With the help of the golden bird, who gives her a pair of magic shoes, the little girl finds her way through the difficulties and discovers that a miracle has occurred: the tree has turned to gold, and the word 'Compassion' has been etched into the bough where the open cage hangs.

It is a tale to inspire every little girl and woman to open the door of self-limitation to discover her true inner worth and release her creativity into the more
