When everything had quieted down and the two lovers were sitting side by side on the sofa, the actress, pretending she was shy, picked up Button and held him up to her face to kiss. Fatal moment for her, for true to his plans, Button planted one claw in her wig and pulled it down over her eyes, while with the other forepaw he scratched her face and clawed her breast with his hind ones.

“Ask him,” said the princess, “if he will be satisfied with ten kisses from one of my ladies.”
“No, thank you,” said the swineherd: “ten kisses from the princess, or I will keep my pot.”
“That is tiresome,” said the princess. “But you must stand before me, so that nobody can see it.”
The ladies placed themselves in front of her and spread out their dresses, and she gave the swineherd ten kisses and received the pot.

“TOM THUMB & THE FAIRY TAILORS”
One summer morning when the wee baby was only a few days old, the queen of the fairies flew in at the window of the room where he lay. She touched his cheek lightly with a butterfly kiss and gave him the name of Tom Thumb. She then ordered her fairy tailors to make for Tom a wonderful suit, his hat of an oak leaf, his shirt of a spider’s web, his jacket of thistledown, his trousers of apple-rind, and his shoes of the skin of a mouse, nicely tanned, with the hair inside.
