If Jesper wanted to win the king's daughter, he had to take 50 European Hares into the forest in the morning and return to the palace with them all at the end of the day.
But European Hares are each fifteen pounds of muscle and bounce! How was Jesper to suceed where the princes, nobles, rich men and even his older brothers had failed? It would take Jesper's cleverness and the help of an old woman (always share your lunch with a hungry old woman) to handle those hares? Did he or did he not win the princess?
