Molly and her mother and sister live by the seashore. A great winter descends and freezes the sea. At night, Molly spies the golden towers of a castle high on the mountain. She tiptoes off up the mountain to ask the King for food for the Winter Feast, little knowing there is a Giant in the forest or that to reach the King she must cross the Bridge of the One Hair! A highly entertaining adventure; Molly finds things are not what they seem and she is bolder and cleverer than she imagined! 'It's just a joy' (Herald).
