Fairy Tales for the Young at Heart 3 (Soft Cover)
by Barbara Bucknall    « View this author's BIO

Excerpt:
"That's what you think!" laughed Petit Paul. "I can catch you every time, but you can never catch me! You silly girl, do you think women are stronger than men?" "Don't boast too soon," said Marion, "but I see you accept the contest." Then Marion drew a circle around the two, in the grass, with her knife. "Jeanne and Paul," she said, "you must stay in the circle. Robin and I will judge. At any breach of the rules, Robin will blow his pipes, and you must stop. Since Jeanne has set up the contest, she must begin."
Jeanne stood there, tall and gold and white in the moonlight, facing the man in black. Then, suddenly, she was gone. Only a little white mouse ran to and fro in the moonlight. Petit Paul gave a laugh, and bounded forward as a great black cat. The mouse ran around, with the cat after it, for a while, seeming to enjoy being hunted. Then it turned into a tall white greyhound, which hunted the black cat. The cat fought the greyhound, scratching and spitting, until it was cornered, and then it became a great black bear. The greyhound ran from the bear for a while, but the bear came after it, snarling and lashing out with its paws. Then the greyhound became a great white bear, and lunged back at the black one.
