The Adventures of Chanticleer and Partlet, also known by The Pack of Ragamuffins, is a German fairy tale collected by the Brothers Grimm. The title has been variously translated into English as in The Adventures of Chanticleer and Partlet: How They Went to the Mountains to Eat Nuts, The Pack of Ragamuffins, The Vulgar Crew, A Pack of No-goods, Riffraff, and The Pack of Scoundrels. The tale tells that a cock and hen went to eat nuts. They made a carriage of nutshells to come back in; the hen rode and the cock drew it. The duck attacked them for eating nuts, but the cock defeated him, and he let himself be harnessed to the carriage instead. A pin and needle joined them. They offered an innkeeper the hen's egg and the duck to let them stay, but in the morning, they ate the hen's egg, stuck the needle in the innkeeper's chair and the pin in his towel. The duck also went off. The innkeeper was pricked by both the needle and pin and the eggshell from the hen flew at his eyes. He resolved to never have such ragamuffins in his inn again. In this book you can also listen and read a short story: The Willow-Wren and the Bear. The Brothers Grimm, Jacob (1785-1863) and Wilhelm (1786-1859), were born in the German state of Hesse. They were universally known for the collection of over two hundred folk tales they made from oral sources and published in two volumes of 'Nursery and Household Tales' in 1812 and 1814. Although their intention was to preserve such material as part of German cultural and literary history, and their collection was first published with scholarly notes and no illustration, the tales soon came into the possession of young readers. This was in part due to Edgar Taylor, who made the first English translation of part of the tales in 1823. (Summary from Wikipedia adapted by Sinkronigo)
