Long ago, just before dawn, a band of fairies flew toward the fields to collect the morning dew. Few ever saw the fairies, for they are careful to hide themselves from human beings. This particular morning the fairies were collecting dew in their small cups when they saw the giant dragon. The dragon was preparing to attack a knight who stood before him. The fairies had no idea that this knight was the courageous St. Leonard. The battle began. The dragon thrashed his spiked tail this way and that.

Inanna was a goddess. One day, she heard her sister, the queen of the underworld, crying. Her husband had died. "I must go to my sister's husband's funeral," Inanna told her servant. "If I do not return in three days, ask the gods for help." When Inanna arrived at the outer gates of the underworld, the gatekeeper ran to tell the queen about the goddess. The queen hated her sister, so she told him: "Open the seven gates, but as my sister enters each gate, take away one of her royal garments."

One fine day, a man went out hunting and returned home with a sack full of ducks. When suppertime came, the man and his wife sat down to eat, but when the woman's son sat down to join them, his mother said, "Go away. Your stepfather brought these ducks for us, not for you." The boy was hurt and angry. He decided to leave. He walked into the forest and began to search for food, digging up roots to eat. Soon, another boy came along. He too was hungry, so the first boy taught the second how to dig for roots, and that night the two boys kept each other company. The next morning, as the boys dug for food, Old Raccoon trundled by. "What are you doing?" he asked. "Digging our breakfast," said the first boy. "Why don't you eat with your families?" Raccoon asked."Our families do not want to care fo ...
