Mary's Penny

By Tanya Landman

Illustrated by Richard Holland

Sometimes the smallest and most unexpected things have the greatest value, as shown in this stylish feminist fable.

This is a story of one farmer, his three children, Franz, Hans and Mary, and an ingenious competition that will determine who should inherit the farm. Which of the farmer's children will be able to fill the house with something that costs a mere penny? Will straw do the trick? Will feathers be sufficient? Or will it take something a little more creative?
