Lena Zhu | 62 comments This is a Children's book I read a long time ago. I believe that there is a guy who wants to marry the king's daughter and the king does not approve. He says that if he can get the devil/giant's blond hair from him without him knowing, then he could marry his daughter. The king knows full well that this is the hardest task in the history of the kingdom.

The man agrees and he goes on the trip and gets it eventually, but has some help from another person (I think maybe the rower of the boat?)

In the end, the King becomes the rower of the boat and is stuck there forever for being greedy???

The Devil with the Three Golden Hairs
The Devil with the Three Golden Hairs
The Devil With the Three Golden Hairs
