A man puts a seed in the ground. It's an enormous turnip. He pulls the turnip but it doesn't move. "Come and help!" he says. A woman, a boy, a girl, a dog, and a cat all come and help, but the turnip doesn't move. Then a little mouse helps. Classic Tales These traditional favorite stories are ideal for children.
