The Trip to Town

Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, in the deepest woods, lived a man named Sam Bow. He lived in a little house with his wife, Missy Bow.

One day, Missy Bow asked Sam Bow if he would go to town and buy her some berries for a pie she was going to bake.

“Okay,” he said.

So he hitched up the horse to the wagon, and off he went to town to buy some berries. They lived really far from town, and he had to pass a bunch of small villages on the way.

The first village he arrived at was a nice one. Everyone came up to his wagon to shake his hand and say hi. Tall ones, short ones, big ones, small ones, fat ones, skinny ones; ones with limps, ones without; ones with long arms, ones with short arms—and tiny, teeny-tiny ones you could barely see. The big villagers had to be careful not to step on the tiny ones; I guess that is why everyone had magnifying glasses, even strapped to their shoes.
