The Esterhazy family has lived in Austria for generations: it is a huge but at the same time tiny family. Huge because it has so many members, small because after such a long time without eating vegetables and instead filling themselves up with pastries (apple strüdel, Sacher cake and chocolates), the Esterhazy’s have become smaller and smaller.
When the young Esterhazy is sent by the head of the family to Berlin to seek a normal-sized wife and found a new great (and tall) family, he could never have imagined the adventures that awaited him. Luckily, there were people there to witness and recount his story.
Today, Chiara Carminati is here to read this story to all children who love tales of adventure.
