This is a delightful children's story which 'once upon a time' was read to me every Christmas . It came from one of my mother's magazines during the 1960's. The original's remains are shown at the bottom of the page, part of the many whimsical 'treasures' I keep.
If you are lucky enough to have an audience of even just one small child, I hope you will read it to them.
Merry Christmas B
