THE HUT IN THE FOREST.

“I am a King’s son, and was bewitched by a wicked witch, and made to live in this forest, as an old gray-haired man; no one was allowed to be with me but my three attendants in the form of a cock, a hen, and a brindled cow. The spell was not to be broken until a girl came to us whose heart was so good that she showed herself full of love, not only towards mankind, but towards animals – and that thou hast done, and by thee at midnight we were set free, and the old hut in the forest was changed back again into my royal palace.”

Making Fun Of You!

Once upon a time there was an old King who had only one daughter. He was very anxious that his daughter should marry, but while she was more beautiful than words can tell, she was so proud and rude that no man who came to woo her was good enough for her. She sent away one after another and even made fun of them to their faces.

“Oh! I am going to tell the King the sky is falling,” says Chicken Little.

“How do you know?” says Henny Penny.

“I saw it with my eyes, I heard it with my ears, and a piece of it fell on my head.”

“May I come with you?” says Henny Penny.

“Certainly,” says Chicken Little.
