What you need to know before your trail

In the peaceful town of Kardemomme, there’s only three people who misbehave. They are the three robbers, Casper, Jasper and Jonathan who live outside the town and regularly enter to steal the things they need. The robbers get arrested and are treated well in jail. In the end they get reformed, and in the final chapter they become the heroes of the day when they extinguish a fire in the tower of the town. Finally Casper becomes the town’s fireman, Jasper becomes the town’s circus manager and Jonathan becomes the town’s baker.
