Hans works faithfully for seven years building a new sewage system.
At the end of his service, his master gives him a lump of gold the size of his head!
Hans heads off to make his fortune, but soon the gold becomes too heavy to carry.
In a series of hilarious encounters with other travellers, Hans ends up trading one thing for another along his journey, from the gold to a goose to a pig and more!
This fractured retelling of Hans in Luck, a lesser-known tale from the Brothers Grimm, will make readers giggle, groan and gasp with delight.
Especially when they see why Hans thinks he is the luckiest man in the world.
