About The Author

Ulla Meyerhof, a 74 yer old retired German Naturopath, wrote this fairy tale 10 years ago for her greatgrandson, who was 4 years old at that time.

She is author of some books on alternative medicine in German and English. Her dream since she wrote that story is that the MAUSKETIERS will make it to the movies
