The Children's Book by  Horace E. Scudder
Table of Contents




A Lion that had falling in love with a Woodman’s daughter, wanted to marry her, so he went to the father and begged him to give him the maid, but the Woodman said he could not think of such a thing as marrying his daughter to a Lion. At that the Lion began to roar furiously, and the father, in a great fright, finding himself in danger, bethought him of a way, and said to the Lion: "I cannot possibly give you my daughter, Lion, unless you will first have your teeth and nails drawn, for these would frighten her." He was so desperately in love, that he readily consented, and when it was all over, asked again for the girl, but the Woodman had no longer any fear of him, and drove him off with jeers.
