A woodcutter drops his mitten in the forest one day and it becomes a warm house for a mouse. Then, one by one, a few other animals want to move in too!
The Three Wise Men
Long ago a very special, bright star appeared in the night sky. Three wise men called Melchior, Caspar and Balthasar gazed at the star in wonder. They had never seen anything like it before.
The Pancake that Ran Awa
Three old ladies are looking forward to eating a delicious fat pancake they've just made. But the pancake has other ideas! It jumps out of the pan, rolls out the door and into the woods as fast as it can go teasing, "You can't catch me!" All the farmyard animals follow, but can anyone catch the mischievous pancake?
