Written by Anne Rose

Illustrated by Paul Galdone


When a woman is about to cook a turnip, the turnip speaks to her, telling her to leave it alone. When the cat, her spoon, and the floor itself all begin to talk to her, the terrified woman runs from her hut in a panic. When she comes upon a woodcutter and tells him her story, his axe speaks to him, and the woman and the woodcutter both run off together. In the end, three citizens go to the king and tell him of their experiences, and he tells them to stop making up lies. After they leave, dejected, the crown on the king's head speaks to him.
