EXCERPT:

Once on a time there was a Hen that had flown up, and perched on an oak-tree for the night. When the night came, she dreamed that unless she got to the Dovrefell, the world would come to an end. So that very minute she jumped down, and set out on her way. When she had walked a bit she met a Cock.

‘Good day, Cocky-Locky’, said the Hen.

‘Good day, Henny-Penny’, said the Cock, ‘whither away so early.’

‘Oh, I’m going to the Dovrefell, that the world mayn’t come to an end’, said the Hen.

‘Who told you that, Henny-Penny’, said the Cock.

‘I sat in the oak and dreamt it last night’, said the Hen.
