Stick, start beating! (ONLY IN CZECH)

A fairy tale about a poor but good hearted musician who despite being hungry himself, shares his last piece of bread with an old man. In return he receives three magic gifts; a tablecloth which fills with food, a donkey that sheds gold coins and a stick that beats its master’s foes. When a greedy innkeeper steels the tablecloth and the donkey, the magic stick makes sure that the evil is punished and good rewarded in Karel Jaromír Erben’s humorous story full of songs.
