How clever are you?
And how sharp-sighted?
Are you as clever as Doctor All-Knowing -- keen to change his sad life (and feed his poor daughter, Maggie)?
Are you, like Doctor All-Knowing, sharp-eyed enough to search out the thieves who've been stealing a rich man's money from right under his nose?
You are just the one to watch Maggie as she cleverly, sharp-sightedly helps her father earn a four-course reward.
The Brothers Grimm rarely told so dross a tale as this little-known one, briskly retold here by Doris Orgel and animated to perfection by Alexandra Boiger.
