ody seems able to stop the plundering and havoc caused by the three robbers, One-Eye, Ginger and Lefty. Even the police constable fears them, and anyway they are quite canny. The village folk decide the robbers have simply gone too far and must be stopped but it is an unlikely adversary that will get the true measure of the thieves. This story was invented, narrated, and illustrated by 1970s award winning childrens writer from Germany, Janosch. Although in the style of a fable, there is an earthy edge of realism to this tale. Janosch has a naive style of painting but his striking colour combinations are quite sophisticated.
