I've always thought it paid to be smart and that's exactly what Mary thought too even though she was from a long time ago in the golden, olden days! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763647683, Library Binding)

With whimsical illustrations, a feminist fable proves that brains outweigh brawn when three siblings enter a most enlightening competition.

Long, long ago, in the golden, olden days, a farmer devised an ingenious competition to determine who should inherit his farm. Which of his children — Franz, Hans, or Mary — could fill the house with something that cost a mere penny? Did straw do the trick? Were feathers sufficient? Or did it take something a little more creative? Tanya Landman’s retelling of a traditional tale, illustrated with Richard Holland’s stylish artwork, reminds us that sometimes the greatest value can be had for only a penny.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:56:28 -0400)

A farmer learns that the best man for the job of farm manager is a girl, as his clever daughter bests his brawny sons in a competition.
