During the summer, Snow White & Rose Red are gathering firewood for their mother and happen upon a dwarf who has his beard caught in a tree he cut down. Catching sight of the girls, he angrily demands that they help him. They try but can't get his beard free. Rose Red offers to run and get help, but the dwarf shouts angrily that he doesn't want any other people around. Snow White pulls out her sewing scissors and cuts the end off of his beard, freeing him. Instead of being grateful, the dwarf rages at them for cutting his "beautiful beard" and flounces off carrying a sack of gold which he had hidden in the bushes.
Who is this hostile dwarf? Where did he get the gold? Do Snow White & Rose Red meet up with him again? And what has happened to their friend, the kindly talking bear? If you read Grimm's Fairy Tales as a child, you already know. If not well, there's no time like the present.
