I do hope my little girl does not dawdle on the path. She is such a a kind daughter. I wish I could go with her.


Is that a fairy I can see over there? If I could just get a little closer then I would be able to see her. I know I shouldn’t go off the path but one minute won’t, will it?


OK, so dear little Grandma lives at the end of the path, does she? Well, I am sure there is a shortcut I can find. Oh, and I need to get rid of this silly straw hat!


I am so tired today. I hope I don’t get woken up by that wolf howling again. I have never heard a noise like it. How will I stay awake all day now?
