"I have no scrubbing brush, but I have a lot of green rushes the mud turtle gave me for turning him right-side up. The rushes are as rough as a scrubbing brush, and will do just as nicely to clean your kitchen." "Oh, thank you! I'm sure they will," said Mother Goose.

But the Capuzzi on the stage clenched his fists too, and cried out in a similar fury, with the same yelling voice: "May all the devils enter your body! you cursed, senseless Pasquale! Abominable skinflint! old amorous goose! motley fool, with the cap and bells over your ears!

I will now take you back to your father, who will certainly know how to disenchant you. The goose accepted his offer with joy, and they managed to slip out of the palace unnoticed by anyone. They got through the journey without accident, and the wizard soon released his daughter, and loaded Jem with thanks and valuable presents.

After the hearty supper and prayers were over in the dining room, and the younger children had retired to rest, Mr and Mrs Ross and the boys went out into the capacious kitchen to hear old Kinesasis give his version of the goose hunt.

'While you were left, like a goose, in the street. Ah, you're a dissolute fellow! But that's not the point, the steward went on, 'I've something to tell you.
