Listen to The Shepherdess and the Sweep on your phone!
There was an old wooden cupboard. It was covered from top to bottom with carved roses and tulips. In the middle of the cupboard door was the carved figure of a man - children called him Major general-field-sergeant-commander Billy-goat’s-legs. He was always looking at the table under the looking-glass, where stood a very pretty little shepherdess made of china. Close to her stood a little chimney-sweep who was also made of china. Close to them stood another figure - Chinaman who could nod his head and thought himself that he was a grandfather of the shepherdess. The shepherdess and the chimney-sweep loved each other, but Chinaman wanted her marriage with Major general-field-sergeant-commander Billy-goat’s-legs. One day the shepherdess and the chimney-sweep decided to escape their house to the open world. What troubles did they face?
