"Dear Mili" an old tale by Wilhelm Grimm, newly translated by Ralph Manheim with pictures by Maurice Sendak. Published by Michael di Capua Books, first edition 1988.

" It tells of a mother who sends her daughter into the forest to save her from a terrible war. The child comes upon the hut of an old man, who gives her shelter, and she repays his kindness by serving him faithfully for what she thinks are three days actually, thirty years pass. When she finally leaves to return to her mother, the old man hands her a rosebud and says: "Never fear. When this rose blooms, you will be with me again."
