This fairy tale follows the romance between a porcelain shepherdess and chimney sweep. These two china figurines stand side-by-side on a tabletop, and are madly in love. Their romance is threatened, however, by the carved mahogany figure of a satyr named "Major-General-Field-Sergeant-Commander-Billy-Goat's-Legs", though everyone calls him Goatslegs for short. Goatslegs lives on a nearby cabinet and wants the shepherdess for his wife. Beautifully illustrated, this classic tale will capture children's interest and spark their imagination inspiring a lifelong love of literature and reading.
