The girl was pretty. No one had ever seen such a pretty girl. She only had one problem: she had no heart. She exchanged her braids, her smile, her teeth... for a marble heart, a painted heart, a heart of gingerbread... No heart sufficed. Moreover, the girl had now lost her beauty. She met an old woman who wanted to give her her heart after she had passed away. The girl looked after the woman and took care of her... When the old woman died, the girl didn't need her heart anymore.


A touching story with powerful illustrations.
