TEENY-TINY

[160]

O
NCE upon a time there was a teeny-tiny woman lived in a teeny-tiny house in a teeny-tiny village. One day this teeny-tiny woman put on her teeny-tiny bonnet and went out of her teeny-tiny house to take a teeny-tiny walk. And when the teeny-tiny woman had gone a teeny-tiny way she came to a teeny-tiny gate; and the teeny-tiny woman opened the teeny-tiny gate and went into a teeny-tiny field. And when the teeny-tiny woman had gone into the teeny-tiny field she saw a teeny-tiny bone beside a teeny-tiny tree, and the teeny-tiny woman said to her teeny-tiny self, "This teeny-tiny bone will make me some teeny-tiny soup for my teeny-tiny supper."


[Illustration]

So the teeny-tiny woman put the teeny-tiny bone into her teeny-tiny pocket and went home to her teeny-tiny house. And when the teeny-tiny woman got home to her teeny-tiny house she was a teeny-tiny tired, and she went up her teeny-tiny stairs to her teeny-tiny chamber and put the teeny-tiny bone [161] into a teeny-tiny cupboard. Then she went to sleep in her teeny-tiny bed, and when she had been asleep a teeny-tiny time she was awakened by a teeny-tiny voice from the teeny-tiny cupboard which said:—

"Give me my bone!"

And the teeny-tiny woman was a teen-tiny frightened. So she hid her teeny-tiny head under the teeny-tiny clothes and went to sleep again. [162] And when she had been asleep for a teeny-tiny time, the teeny-tiny voice cried out again from the teeny-tiny cupboard a teeny-tiny louder:—

"Give me my bone!"

This made the teeny-tiny woman a teeny-tiny more frightened. So she hid her teeny-tiny head a teeny-tiny farther under the teeny-tiny clothes. And when the teeny-tiny woman had been asleep again a teeny-tiny time, the teeny-tiny voice from the teeny-tiny cupboard said again a teeny-tiny louder:—

"Give me my bone!"

And the teeny-tiny woman was a teeny-tiny more frightened; but she put her teeny-tiny head out of the teeny-tiny clothes and said in her loudest teeny-tiny voice:—

"TAKE IT!"
